Across The Waves – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Sarah at dVerse is hosting Poets Pub tonight, and Sarah has invited us to “what3words” the idea is to locate yourself on a web map via what3words and three words are given, of which a poem from three to twelve lines will be constructed. dVerse Poets – Poets Pub – Three Little words

From what3words I received for my map reference – Indulged, Tended, Yachts.

“The fishermen Know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.” Vincent Van Gogh

Across The Waves

Moon shimmered on the Blackwood,
increasing the mood of night at the edges
of my senses, all of the yachts were tethered,
but I indulged to my heart and set sail
in feltness across the waves of feeling,
slipping through the gaps between 
black and slivers of silvered visions,
in rippled moments while moon 
tended my every direction.

  7. I have sailed a few times in darkness… and I find there is a special magic in being on the water guided by the moon.
