Not Alone

I am captain of my little craft
and its only crew
I sail along without a raft
so sinking will not do.

I write a letter every day
and toss it to a wave.
The words I hope will reach you say
Don't be afraid. Be brave.

To whom my letters go, and when
they get there? I've no clue.
But sometimes (every now and then)
I'll catch a note from you.

--Lynn Viehl

Thanks for tossing that lovely poem out into the waves. And those are beautiful shots. You've managed to capture that fantastic rosy light.

I love the poem. It made my morning. :o)

And those colors are beautiful. You make me want to live there.

Absolutely lovely! The pictures are gorgeous too.

Being out there in the sunset (or dawn) would definitely inspire poetry. That and the quiet lap of the waves on the side of the boat.

Loved it.

And the pictures, too. Which of the two cameras (Canon or Kodak) did you use to take these?
