Another boat prompt! The following is written all in fun for Crispina’s Creative Challenge.
To sail the world his life long dream
and more before he completely fulfilled it
for to him it seemed if he’d sail it he should also build it.
So before hoisting of sails came hammer and nails
pounding these before seeing pounding seas
his dreams would not be derailed.
But the longer it took, responsibilities forsook
his wife despaired and grew ever more stern;
he’d just bow and tell her how
floating his dream was his greatest concern.
Finally came a day when she sailed away
deserted him, left him alone high and dry;
he started in to work on the boat again
and then stopped to wonder why.
He’d been dreaming of great escape
had dreamed of sailing away
but his dream seemed wrong
and with his wife now gone
he was now wanting to stay.
