Opposing rocks, foaming waves ensue
mighty ocean alive, see my soul as such
giving me answers, As two loves have I

Shall I listen to my heart beat, being
not compromised to worldly desires
instead...his pure heart of treasures,
bestowing neither rich nor poor
revelations. but to adorn life by
choosing devotion to each other

Or, shall I embrace a respectful
families life of luxury and take my
place... becoming his socialite wife,
fighting for life's important causes,
much as aristocrats justify doing
with their disposable money

My tears are becoming salty
from the splashing of the ocean
burning my visions of perception,
As two loves have I

Yacht or Dinghy for Purpose,
insignificant given the ocean's vastness
sending my consciousness swimming with
dolphins, as they will tell the secrets as to

which it should be for a life vest of purpose

(c) Yacht or Dinghy for Purpose

Nice take on the age old dilemma, marry for love or money. If your poems are anything to go by you would choose the poor suitor. Anyway, who wants to be rich, bored and jaded.

Listen to your heart beat.the most you can wish a person is Love.

You have captured well the poor boy/rich boy dilema that lovers through out the ages have quarelled with. I myself tend to think of it this way...when you are laying on that hospital bed on your last few breathes...which would you choose then, a large diamond on your finger or a hand holding yours with love and sadness.

Won't be long before I need to use that dinghy to get from my land yacht to my car...LOL, ed
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 8/27/2011
Very well-constructed, well-thought out poetry, Vivian. It is decisions such as this that cause you to second guess whichever you chose the yacht or the dinghy. Excellent poetry.
