a traveler’s tale…

cubanize

i can see the shore
where many have
travelled before
the waves are larger
as the earth reaches up
to touch the bottom
of my aging craft
when i was further from
these rocky shores
the waves seemed
less troubling
i was more than certain
that i could
navigate
around the coral reefs
that can cut deep
into the soul’s flesh
but
these calloused hands
have grown weak
and
scarred
as time
has emptied from
this vial of existence
i wonder
what lies beyond
is it
an enchanted forest
filled with winged angels
or
dark damp caves
that rot souls
i need not
guess
i shall soon
find out

  1. I hope it’s not for many years to come! that was an amazing picture, but the poem was truly felt deeply and loved the double entendres…. and I also hope when the time comes you find the angels in the enchanted forest… 🙂
