Unexplained – #poetry – #JanuaryWriting
Please read the amazing words of a talented writer.
In a tiny boat, I wondered what happened to me
The water, crystal clear, sparkled, like sunlit glass
Fish swam below me, schools of them, en masse
I couldn’t see anything, no matter where I looked
Suddenly, the calm receded, then the water shook
Up, from out of the ocean, a distant island appeared
At least I think it was, my eyesight, not quite clear
Palm trees swayed, in the breeze, atop a sandy shore
I shaded sun from my eyes, why couldn’t I see more?
Alas, I realized, this place, was all that had remained
Of Earth, of me and my boat, the rest is unexplained
January Writing Prompt – A distant shore was all that remained – Day 8/31
