Sailboat In The Bay   Leave a comment

Sailboat In The Bay — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Sailboat

Strange flight, the body
Held at a threshold
And never quite freed

Or quite revealed—
One wing taut with wind,
One wing concealed

Until the wind grows calm
And it shimmers in a shadow-world,
The shape of a sail, yet softer—

The drifting boat
A bird half in air,
Half in water.

— Heather Allen, from Leaving a Shadow
