Would we need more

If we could fly away
together, you and me,
and take our needed rest
on a sailing ship at sea,
and find a fish to eat,
would we need more,
would we stay there,
or fly back to the shore?

I took these pictures of the “Zeemeeuw” ( “Seagull”, a sailing vessel my son works on) , earlier this month in the harbour of Terschelling

  1. This is a poem that could make you smile from the tip of the hair on your head down to your toenails, Ina. It’s almost a children’s rhyme, but enlivens life wonderfully.

  2. Miss you posting in poets corner, Ina πŸ™‚

  3. What a beautiful picture, Ina … and the lines that accompany it also!

  4. I agree with what Thomas said – makes me smile. And it’d be a delightful poem for children too!

  5. ‘and find a fish to eat,
    would we need more,’

    Ah … the simple things nourish love so! Lovely, Ina.

  6. Francina said:

    very good, Ina!

    groetjes, Francina

  7. Oh I love this Ina. The longing. The sea. And ships at sea.
