  • Picture-Perfect Happiness

    Saturday visit to the marina
    was a lovely reminder of yesterdays.
    We were greeted with handsome crafts display.
    Each tide's rise and fall lulled these
    crafts like little babes in their cradles.
    Ah, finally...a familiar boat came to sight...
    "Bitter -Sweet" was contentedly in the slip
    awaiting her loyal friends from its past.

    Your twinkling eyes like harbor lights
    hid under the brim of your hat.
    The cap's bill was still adorned
    with favorite fish hook
    you claimed "lucky" all those years.
    So, we board the craft
    and I saw how you handled her with pride.
    You maneuvered her with ease
    because it was so much better when the tide is high.

    I felt the gentle ebb as we cruised the bay
    towards the blue horizon and peaceful sight
    surrounded us as we anchored the boat amidst clear water...
    There, you sat with your fishing pole
    as you patiently waited the catch of the day.
    I watched your contentment...
    That was a picture-perfect happiness!

    I used to fish a lot, and I enjoyed it most when I was alone. Me, the ocean, and...where're the fish?
    But to have a loved along who would sit there, silent, enjoying my pleasure would have been nice.

    Another romantic in the house!
    Nice write, imrogue!
