Bold Sailor


Linking with Poet's United Midweek Motif ~Climate posted by Susan

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco. ~Mark Twain


There has been a climate change in the center of my heart.
The polar ice caps are melting because love's light has left a mark.
No longer are there icebergs that could sink the grandest ship.
 Now flows a current that allows a vessel's course to enter in.
 Expansion of the heart is a pilgrimage that must endure a harsher cold.
For the only way to gain a deep love is to be a sailor that is bold.

  1. Wow! Beautiful on every level. We learn from experience, but navigating gets more cautious rather than easier. Love. I'm working on boldness so I can do more than survive!

  5. If there is warmth in your life there will also be cold as well as they hand in hand just like love and grief. However I agree boldness definitely helps!

  10. Boldly sailing forth - taking the chance to love (and therefore be loved) is often a climate of opposite forces.

  11. For me, this line struck a chord:

    " Expansion of the heart is a pilgrimage that must endure a harsher cold."

    Emotive write, Carrie.
