Thoughts of Slipping Away

“More Dizain”

How inviting, the ocean blue water
as she stands at railing in reverie
not surprised where her aimlessness brought her.
What would it feel like to float leisurely,
never to return to world above sea.
Not a new thought; she has been there before,
knows she must focus on opening doors
new to her. What if something wonderful
lies behind them? She might light on pleasure
that will alter her life, make her heart full.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I enjoy watching the ocean or even large lakes. They seem so all encompassing. I can see how one might want to float away on them although I rarely go out very far. Nice lines: “Not a new thought; she has been there before,
    knows she must focus on opening doors”

    Thought provoking Sara. I am drawn to water like a magnet, so I get the seduction. Well written!


  3. I love the sense of freedom inspired by the water, it awakens many dreams.


  4. You make it sound most enticing! A beautiful dizain.
