Friday 55-Adrift

FRIDAY 55

I charted a course,
set sail with hope.
The winds were with me
until the clouds gathered.
The storm blew.
Waves crashed,
 tossed me mercilessly.
I was blown off course.
When the sky cleared 
I found myself adrift,
no breeze to fill my sail.
I'll plot a new course
and paddle
 until the wind returns.

best thing to do...paddle on...the winds will find you again soon...some pretty cool wisdom for life in this one...

Sailboats are beautiful.. But I like a safe pontooon with a motor.

We only think we're charting our course, but fate often has it's own plan.

Shadow said...

sounds like life to me...

Thats the spirit!
You might as well be pragmatic about it.
Loved your allegorical 55 Trini
Thanks for playing, and thanks for visiting and helping me out this week with commenting, I reall appreciate it.
Have a Kick Ass Week-End

Yeah, life is like that. A LOT. . .

No matter what- on we go! great scene thanks!

Suldog said...

Just keep in mind that the wind WILL always return :-)

Suldog said it better than i could (tho he did steal my thought)

Sometimes the best we can manage is patience. Nicely-crafted 55, Lime!

Something to ponder:

In Ancient Greek, Pneuma (πνεύμα) is the word for "wind."

The theological term "Pneumatology" is the study of the Holy Spirit.

That might be comforting OR unsettling, but remember the Lord's promise "never to leave you or forsake you."

Craig said...

?? I KNOW I left a comment here. . . Did it somehow get sent to your spam?

Good comment, Craver. That metaphorical 'wind' was what I had in mind, as well.

Anyway, I loved this poem. Like Shadow said above, life is a lot like that. . .

I think I'd just grab a fishing pole and kick back for a while.

Grace said...

Yes, paddle and grab anything till you get to the shore ~ Lovely offering ~

Drifting is good, too. I've done my share of drifting lately. :-)

I really love this. Would you mind if I put it on one of my photos to frame and read daily?
