My Boat Wants To Sail

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

My boat is all alone
On the weaving mystic sea
Like a bottom pebble stone
That cannot become free
Blue white billow's high
In their faraway circling around
Surround it there and tie
On deep abyss own playground

My boat wants to sail
Through oceans of unknown
In search of a fresh trail
Where easy wind has blown
But brine seas are deep
And get so much there lost
Commitments cannot keep
On rocky shores get tossed

Sea dreams wonít elapse
If we can find their way
Sail through hidden traps
Reefs that with ridge play
My boat wants to find
The freedom of the deep
And leave old scenes behind
That my turret canít keep

Wow, what a breathtaking image. Can't believe how utterly pristine and uninhabited this particular area seems...
And the poem is well chosen for the image. Kudos!

It's a wonderful composition, I love it -- great job. Is this anywhere close to the WWII landing beaches? (I'm not familiar with the area.)

Sort of minimalistic. I like it.
Would have been better without cloning in that single cloud, imho.

thx but what do you mean by "cloning that cloud"

Zyklotrop Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2009  Professional General Artist
I mean that you obviously added the cloud in Photoshop or any other software. I think the picture would have been better without it. ;-)
