A Peaceful Harbor


I have rode the high seas
through many violent storms

Tidal waves crashing around
me
churning against my vessel

The more I learn, the better
equipted I am,
to handle the storms of life

My ship is resting a peaceful
harbor
returning to sea no more

my peaceful harbor is you.

    But taughtly wrapped sails and anchors rust beneath the harbored swells
    And long long glances at horizons
    you curse the calls from hell
    You long for the adventure, the treachery, and comradery
    wishing to cast off sails, and leave at break of day (Report) Reply

    So you are safely anchored in a secure harbour away from the raging storm and rising waves! ! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
