The Boat

The Boat short poem

Photo by Ana Karenina


I was standing by the beach,
Staring at the ocean
When I saw a small boat
Which was trying hard to stay afloat.

I started to notice it with attention
My face expressed tension
It was fluttering left and right
Struggling on the ocean with might.

I could see the determination it had
To fight against the fierce waves.

Human lives are filled with sorrows
As great as the waves
But to fight against them,
We need an emblem,
Just like the Boat.

Paper boat, paper boat, In the stream goes up and down afloat. It floats from the stream, then to the ocean till the night, Only floating and floating is the boat’s right. On the water of the dark blue ocean,

Boat Capsizes

Boat Capsizes short poem

Stammering quarrel with classical fluidity, fails to measure the uncertainty. I was finding my rocks, that chunk of certainty in midstream, when you were not sailing with me. The wait, stirs high the separated pain. Boat capsizes on high sea,
