Walking, losing weight and taking photos of life in Virginia.

Sailing Away

Last night we gathered on a ship

Our tribe and all our friends,

And sailed for distant galaxies

To find a peaceful land.

The stars received us as we went

Our lives passed through their gaze

We sailed between their fire and light

Our eyes were all ablaze.

Until we reached a port of sorts

With meadows near a sun

And joyous children running round

Who welcomed us at once.

They ruled this planet with a light

That shone from their deep eyes.

And no one wanted anything

Nor did they fear to die.

For there upon a mountain top

Far as the eye could see

There was one child who filled the world

With love and mysteries.

And when the children grew too tall

No longer children were

They climbed the mountain to the boy

And left through heaven’s door.

We were entranced and climbed so high

To see his glowing face.

He smiled our way

The mountain sang

We died in his embrace.

And then I woke amid the sails

That guide my ship at night

And prayed that I would see again

This boy who was the light.

    Hi David – now that is my kind of scene and poem! Ah the perfect place for this time of the year! Great poem too :)

    P.S. is there something wrong with the date? It showed up as May?

    P.P.S. I would love to hear your thoughts on the LaraBars as to how you like them and which ones you prefer the LaraBars or the Weil Bars?

    Hi Evita. I used a plugin to move this post forward for a day or so. It will go back to May after I “unplug” it. It doesn’t seem to cause as much google confusion this way.

    I like the ones I just bought better. The Larabar. They have a more enjoyable taste and texture. And they were less expensive too. Plus they have a neat little logo on the package “real food that creates an unmistakable feeling of health and well-being, often accompanied by an inexplicable and irresistible urge to, well, hum. ”

    Now that’s pretty funny. Haven’t heard that one before.
