Sans kid, sans time
Marrow to marrow
Bow to stern
Under stars, under moon
You navigate me
I navigate you
Loons pitch calls across the bay
Ululating in the wake of our sway
Sink me tender
Make me swoon
Swathe life’s wounds
Missing link connected
We climb on deck
Railed toward home
Anchored in each other’s port

Visit The Sunday Whirl.
For our 25 several years ago we finally had a really nice week – just the two of us in Maui. Hope you recharged your batteries! Best to you and yours. I hope your guy knows just how lucky he is!
Thanks for your visit. I’ve had family matters to attend, and sinus issues the last couple of days. But I got the new list and a new piece just waiting for tomorrow… Either you make these lists just for me or I just make them work 🙂 Thanks.
This is quite beautiful, Brenda. I was wondering if you were going to write to the wordle this week. Hope the vacation was wonderful.
Brenda…you’re so right — this really is the antithesis of “Abandon(ed) Ship” that I wrote. SO lovely. And that “navigate” stanza… *sigh* 😉
I love this, Brenda. My husband and I celebrate our 40th on Sunday, so the topic is particularly appreciated.
Congrats Margo! I’m happy that you like this piece. We celebrated our 8th anniversary on the boat. Both of us had previous marriages, and combined families. This really was our first significant vacation without the kids. Fun!
Oh, Brenda. I love this. It’s so romantic and precious!
Thanks for your comment on my blog. I love the wordle!
Thank you, Cheryl.
(sigh) So beautiful.
Welcome back Brenda – it’s amazing how you managed to provide us with words from a boat! Your poem is gorgeous. I quite forgot it is a wordle.
Welcome home andddd… this is so beautiful. All of it. It’s soft and gentle, sensual ‘You navigate me, I navigate you’ and yes, ululating is a fabulous word to roll across the tongue. I want to say that the last two stanzas are my favourite but, it wouldn’t be correct because I do love them all.
The time away did you good, and thanks for your comment. 🙂
Thank you…this piece feels good to me. It’s nice to have it well received.
anchored in each others port…something beautiful about that…and ululating, what a cool word….
ditto barbara’s sentiment brenda … esp fell for “sink me tender” … oh my
Thanks Sharon. That’s what’s so cool about wordles….I had to use “sink,” and that line appeared!
I love this.
Me too, thanks.
