I grew up with all these old poems in my head.
Poems of ships at sea and young soldiers at war.
Banners and wars. Trumpets and swords with names. Masted sails and ships with oars. Horse hooves upon the moors.
But... they are just poems. Don't worry, I know the difference between life and verse.... I think!
Today we hired a little fishing vessel, an outboard skiff and headed into the crystal clear Visaya Sea to drop our lines in the calm water and wink at one another while we wait.
We caught our fish and snorkeled in the reefs and marveled at all that lay beneath this amazing blue green tranquility...
But I kept these poems in my heart.
Sometimes it's good to forget life and verse and just.... live in the difference between.
