A few words about a sailboat.

Photo:By Patrick Granfors - Evening in port at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico





Evening Odyssey

Stony pillars bathed in dusk

Guide the sailor home


Wavelet’s sparkling wine

Reflections of enchantment

Portrait for a dream


Shimmering colors

Nightfall’s soft tranquility

Neptune is at ease


Glitter mast aglow

Serenity its master

Divining the wind


Shadowless clipper

Whispers colors of the heart

To those who listen

Very lovely, my friend. During those long ago days on a Coast Guard weather ship, I used to love standing at the stern watching the wake and sunset. Your words bring back this memory.
