Farewell - Poem by Jazlle D. H.

The love that emerges from the gloomy land
and rises out of a sea of chimera is gone
The boat of love is now ready to sail
away from the isle of illusion
The sail will catch the wind,
propel and maneuver the boat
It will take time to find the island of hope
and in this voyage the boat will face circumstances
nights and days, rain or shine
even storms and tidal waves
but the boat of love will continue its journey
until it reaches the shore of a new beginning…

    A great poem in terms of art and thought. It takes me back to Yeats:
    'And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
    To the holy city of Byzantium.'

    Joan...This one is very good! I have sailed before, and your poem draws similarities between love and a journey very nicely. Well done!

    A day is always in farewell
    That emerges from the rising
    In misty of its own spell
    And hours of true disguising
    To catch a boat that then sails
    You'll need to know of land
    Many are the shores and trails
    To come there to understand

    Each voyage takes you on a trip
    Of perceptive and discovering
    Don't let a chance from you slip
    For its aims are in the uncovering
    As every distance is an illusion
    For tidal waves to move and slope
    And give you some of its confusion
    So hold securely on to your rope

    Each day may be of rain or shine
    Or circumstances chimera done
    Just hold on to your kind of line
    And every battle may well be won
    There is a saying in new beginning
    That everything's standstill or old
    You only need your ways of winning
    And to that endeavor always hold

    but the boat of love will continue its journey
    until it reach the shore of new beginning.....................

    jurney when trudged upon
    love slithers across the blue
    passion raves up by the bliss
    life yet seems to be braced up azure...............love when wishful by the hope of tomorrow, belief happens to grow by the trust., wonderful imagery of love when glimmers by the dream drifting ashore, wellpenned,10+, thanks for sharing.
