Day 20 POEM: Sailing on Open Love

May 12, 2016

Sailing on Open Love, before 2012


he blows warm breath in my sails

soft against them, and we glide across clear water.

i am here by invitation,

sent to me on the cry of a seagull.

when he laughs, the speed picks up

the sun is brighter

and my smile is too.

i am having fun

here on the open sea

while he blows breath into my sails

and a glide in a boat of love.





The date of this one is unknown. The document on my computer was dated April 17, 2012. However, there are a few poems with that date, which leads me to believe they were copied from a notebook into my computer. If I had to guess, I'd say it was written for my husband because he loves being on the water, whether or not it was written before he was my husband is a mystery. Yesterday was the 5 year anniversary of the date he proposed to me so when I came across this one in my rereading of my poetry, it seemed like a nice one to share with you today.
