When time was young
and fish were wise,
a little boy would
guard the boats

his people used
for gathering food,
while their gods watched
over them from skies

that used to lie closer
to the water and the earth-
for this was the place
where the wind came to rest

and the sea would caress
the edge of the world,
and bless those who
trusted in the rhythm of

life, until the
cycle of death would
come and set them free-
to watch over

a little boy who
guarded the boats,
when time was young
and fish were wise.
A poem inspired by `foureyes's photo taken somewhere in China, "once upon a time..." [link]

:bulletblue: 1.2.10: this poem has been chosen by the group #BlueMoonBird to be featured in its gallery. What an honor, and don't you just love the group's avatar.

:bulletred: 10.24.09: Bernie aka `foureyes is Grand Prize Winner in the National Geographic & Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest - and this photo used as the preview piece for my poem that I wrote especially for it, is one of two of his works that won first prize in their categories!

:hug: aw sweetheart, what are you thanking me for? It's I who thanks you for embracing my wordcraft, for the lovely support you show, and for faving this poem of mine that symbolized a turning point in my writing back when I didn't even know there was a lit community.

I had a bit of trouble finding the lit community too, but only because I have "senior moments." :lol:
You're like the avatar you use, at least in my mind and from what I read by you. :hug:

Thank you so very much, Rachel, for you sharing your thoughts, and for the fave as well. This poem was a turning point for me, so everyone who has responded in how it has touched them since (including Bernie, who's photo inspired me like it did), has been a true honor. :heart:
