row the boat ashore

low rolling ambitious clouds to cover 
impressions made by the
sun’s footprints, others
thirstily drink from a 
small pond of blue water,
a shirtless man 
rows a wooden boat, fears
of inclement weather
fears of drowning
fears of getting wet,
the moon is sinking; his body is
there while the event
takes place,
craters spill out moon dust, 
blustery winter on a mountain range
is blindfolded by 
the soot,
colours gray the prairie,
he cannot see from whence
he came, nor where he’s
suppose to be.

  1. This poem reminds me of life – people must swim or they’ll sink – life carries many struggles and this is a reminder regardless of the circumstances people face on a day to day basis, they cannot give up. Profound & Excellent!
