2019 Day 19 – Ashore At Last

Ashore at last,
Boat beached, becalmed.
Cost counted,
Debts discharged.
Evening sky
Filled with fire.
Gently, we go
Home to
Knowing only
Loving lips,
Mouthing music
Opening hands,
Palms pressed to palms,
Reach out
To take this blessing,
Veiled vows.
We see through words like
You and I.


Notes: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem in which the word choice follows the words/order of the alphabet. You could write a very strict abecedarian poem, in which there are twenty-six words in alphabetical order, or you could write one in which each line begins with a word that follows the order of the alphabet.” I’ve aimed for a mood in this one.
