i set them sailing on the lake,
paper lanterns with your halcyon
smile burning on the water.

before they left my fingers
i kissed each and said
a prayer to poseidon
that all these words
would reach you somehow.

    • Thank you. I was thinking about Sam Beckett’s quote “all poetry is prayer”, and how true that can be. I’m glad you liked the piece.


      • Oh my goodness, you take me by the collar and give me a good shake for not giving him and nor you enough credit. I love Beckett and I am always surprised to find a mutual fan, idiot as I am.
        Brilliant đŸ™‚
