Solace of the Sea
by Linda H. Carnwy

The sturdy sloop bobs along,
Waves licking at the sides.
Its sails filled with lilting breeze
Birthing joy in my sighs.

The scent of kelp and ocean air,
Gulls gliding overhead,
The swish of boat upon the foam,
I slumber in my water bed.

Rejoicing in the shifting ocean,
And the friendships that I find,
The suntanned faces, generous hearts,
Like currents running through my mind

Oh glorious days spent on the water,
When escape is what must be.
Sea calls me with its siren song
Come launch and sail!   
Be free with me!
