The Port

The Port short poem

Photo by agtwo

A quirky beginning provides a funny story to share
Fits of stops and starts when suddenly, beautifully
The friendship is built; a vessel to carry lives
A port to weather many storms
Though this is not yet known

Years of stories filled with memories held dear
Years of life events shared as friends become family
And then become one

The friendship port rises, guides them through sorrow
Comforts them in grief
The port rises to celebrate with them in times of joy
The port watches happily during times of laughter
The port is prepared to weather the storm
The foundation, you see, is strong

The storm comes, dark clouds and driving rain
Cracks of thunder, howling winds
When the storm passes and the clouds part
The port shines brightly
Providing the light by which we wash away regrets
Guiding the friendship home

Differences make us whole, darkness makes us grow
The port guides us back to where we belong
Spoken and unspoken the words are clear
Friendship as the port will always guide you
Forgiveness and love will always shine bright

True friendship like the port
Will always weather the storm

I am so glad you are here. Please make yourself at home, here, next to the arm-chair. Let us talk of poetry and life; let us laugh and crack jokes; let us rule the world with our lofty thoughts and electrodes for those out of line.Most likely I will pee a little when we laugh, and my thoughts are usually random rather than lofty, but you know what they say: “The dog of the exceptional wisdom has the bird of sleeping monkeys in his dreams!”Anyway, I was talking to a guy the other day who was high on pot (he was standing on the toilet) and I mentioned my fear of bush hogs and roaches. He comforted me and then asked why I was in the stall with him.So there you go, my full life story nowhere on this page. I feel like we know each other so much better now. Sometimes I’m serious, sometimes I seriously funny, sometimes I’m seriously gassy. I am at all times grateful for your support.If you have an idea to share, or just want to drop a line, you can contact me at peanuttyoh@yahoo.comBe excellent to each other and glitter on glitterbombs.

A Port In The Sea

A Port In The Sea long poem

My life started like a boat in search of other lands where there would be peace, love and hope And travel I did so much in search of a place where I would not be considered a stranger anymore So
