by Nancy Rae Kienzler
I watched two boats
sail their separate courses,
and thought how sad
that these two beautiful things --
and following parallel paths --
should nonetheless be disjoined
by all that sea between them.
Like clouds overhead,
blown across the same space by the same wind,
but separated by a slice of sky.
But then sometimes the wind
will catch one cloud a little more than the other,
and blow the two together,
when you watch the sailboats in the distance,
you'll see their paths cross,
their bows kiss,
their sails intermingle.
And you realize that
nor any space between,
can keep two --
who are meant to be one --

Creative Writing: Sailing and Love
I'm posting this a few days early because I'm heading out on vacation.... Here's a sailing poem I wrote last year, to celebrate the wedding we got to witness on board the Victory Chimes.
