The Boat Ride

autumn-on-the-river-1889 john singer sargent

Rowing, rowing, rowing
Inhaling the sights around
Drenched in the morning sunlight
Saw beauty all around

Water kissing shores
Then running to meet the sea
Trees nodding their heads
Enjoying the caressing breeze

Birds flying overhead
Keeping a watch on me
Fearing I’d fall overboard
Or catch the fish to eat

The horizon came nearer and nearer
A wall ready to stop me ahead
Miles and miles I traveled
Only to find it a myth

People I met on the way
People I left behind
People I saw in the distance
All strangers yet wishing goodbye

My hands started to ache
The oars felt heavy and tired
The caressing wind on my cheeks
Sang a lullaby to send me to sleep

I know not when the oars
Fell from my hand overboard
I know not when my eyes
Decided to close and rest

The chirp of birds around
The sound of men not far
The roar of a motor in the distance
Woke me from slumber deep

The sun was smiling at me
Reminding me it was time I got on my feet
I looked around to find
I was there where I had started the dream.

sounds of vampires sinister

blood drawn, irritated skin

river of life rules mankind
rivers the rulers

cousins meet cousins
long lost relations revive
tears and hugs galore

********************

harsh, strong words uttered
heartbroken, devastated
lips quiver, eyes red.

blood embraces blood
lips tremble, eyes shine, words fail
a hug speaks it all.

********************

romance in the air
thick thorns sharp, ready to tear
blood oozing love wins.
