A Tall Story. In Full Sail. - Poem by Robert Green

In the quiet, still morning
Of calm waters and painted skies
A tall story waits to be told.
Here to unfold.

Not always at anchor
the open seas I hanker
When set free
I’m like a child full of glee

Full wind in my sail
I bring bring smiles, never fail
Head first across seas
My anchor chain I flee.

Open waters I part
on an adventure I start
Wind billows, sail crack
Salt waters across by bows, smack.

Sunlight across my deck
Redness on my Masters neck
I race like a bird on the wing
My rigging does sing.

Waters blue/ green
Children on deck serene
Full of laughter
‘Faster, Daddy, faster.

Dolphins race us
In and out of water. No fuss.
Whales on the horizon
Beautiful creatures, not surprising.

Upbeat and racing along
Heart beating song.
Off into the sunset
More adventures to find, and give vent.

In the quiet, still morning
Of calm waters and painted skies
A tall story waits to be told.
