On Our Way

Ready to sail on a ship so little as the wind pushes it gently over every ripple It will silently flow through uncharted waters; waters that are unknown but when it  docks and I am smiling  I'll know this little ship is home.

DeniMari, the form quite supports the message. your title sets the little ship a’sail. That life and dreams are spurred by metaphoric waves and winds- and that the next day is always –uncharted waters- leaves one with the –unknown- no matter how well prepared the day. The waves of your form sort of push the –little ship- along. One wonders towards the end (a moving ending that is both a day to day exposure and the ending of life itself) whether the sights past were worth the voyage. Then again, in the end –I am smiling- and that says volumes. The author is far more at peace with it all than I am. I will have to be dragged into the next dimension kicking and screaming for just one more moment. A very nice little voyage in our metaphoric sea.

Deni, This leaves soooooo much you can imagine. I like it a lot. I need to do as this. I think this is one of your best! You captured an emotion onto paper and it sailed. How great is that! Dellena

Hi Deni, This poem is both clever and creative. I love the simplicity of the one word lines, something I have never thought to do. The metaphor of the little ship is superb and the theme made me smile as I was urging the little ship on. Well done. Best wishes, cheyenne

I liked the theme of your poem; it would look better if you closed the lines up (making sentences)and my suggestions (with respect) to make your poem flow 'Ship so small - The wind pushes - When it docks, I am smiling - For this small ship has come home. Each line looks better if you use a capital letter. Well done poet. Regards, Kay.

Deni, Love this poem! Simple, yet the sweet - imagery is great. I have this vision of two people in love jumping into a small boat, canoe, whatever and paddling along, seeing their own little island in the distance and hoping the waves won't be too rough when the get into the open sea and try to reach it. Love when a poem let's you take something from it and relate it to how you would perceive the world. Speaks to my former romantic sensibilities. Love the layout too - you expanded on what I think are the key points: It is a small beginning, there will be small trials along the way, and they are unknown but I am smiling and hopeful because I know we will get there and it will be home. Ship so little It gently over every ripple Uncharted Waters I am smiling I'll know this little ship is home Thanks for sharing - really love it! Kim
