Riddle – Word of the Day

Warm Solution

The cloak of your mystery
opens to reveal but a riddle,
your lips,
are they passion?
Or, are they dark heart?
hypnotised by your gaze,
I just stood there,
but you solved the riddle,
as your cloak fell,
and you opened your arms.

Fathom – Word of the Day

If I could kedge your mysterious depths,
that I might navigate safely,
the channels of emotion
that course our veins,
and so, not risk the reefs of disappointment
and wreckage of love.
To fathom your feelings,
to know for sure,
that I am yours.

Note: Kedging is the old art of guiding a sailing ship into bays and channels using a longboat to row ahead and plot a safe course and drop an anchor allowing the ship to pull itself against the anchor and move the course safely. It helped many a tall ship avoid running aground, or hitting a reef. The method is also used to rescue ships that ran aground, technically using the anchor as a lever to pull against, thus setting the ship free.
