People ask me what this poem is about... Really, it's about the interpretation you bring to it, not the interpretation I give it. See what you think...
On a grey day by a grey sea
As the tide flees this steady shore,
Two children --
altogether mindless of Monday
and the grim anguish of their parents,
Greet white-capped waves with ecstasy
And far away, a three-sailed bark,
Poised on the edge of sky and sea
Slips silent into mystery.
Who stands before the mast?
Is it the shadow of the man?
Or does this brim-full heart,
holding his hand,
Chart a sure course by some forgotten star
To bring him home again?
--a gift from Alice, June 2003
Ascending with Planet Earth

|That ecstasy, it will mess with you every tiime. LOL. Nice job. I like it. It takes a lady to chart a man's course home. a man alone will just continue passing star after star and never return home.|
