day 2.floating

day 2. poetry gong. new to you. go to big tent poetry and read all about it.

a BOAT beneath a sunny sky, lewis carroll. one of my favorite writers, is the author of this wonderful acrostic poem. It is also the first line of the poem of which I am using as my first line. there is so much wonder in carroll’s poem have always been fascinated by his ode to alice, his wife… though i wanted to attempt an acrostic there just wasn’t enough time. day 2 and enjoying every minute of it.

a boat beneath a sunny sky
liaison lazy along  the sea
now a gentle breeze
adieu destination bound

the waves lap lightly
tending the way
while none occupants notice
the direction nor care

they sit and stare
touch and sigh
enjoy the sway and song

soft liquid silence
over treetops mountain view
aerial eyesight blue sky canvas
roars the remains of remembrance

he slept soundly viewing a world no one else knew. weaving his way amid the stars he stopped at a four-way intersection. hesitating little he pressed the pedal of his pedantic personality making way with wings of steel. nearly there he never looked beyond his porch.

happiness beckons in continuous kinship
arresting the anger cuffed and stayed
reconciliation chain entwine simpatico
mischievous madness manifesting nowhere
optimism spreads sweet strawberry jam
nesting resentment cleared and cleaned
yielding yawns wishy washy yummy yearn
