Headline Poem 12/14/14 -- capsized


Art by Sandra "Sasha" Moreano 



Today's poem is inspired by another piece of art by Sandra Moreano. Here is a link to her website where I found this beautiful painting -- http://shashasclips.blogspot.com/2014/12/gelli-prints.html.


capsized 

the storm came 
out of nowhere 
    to tip over 
      our boat
which  
would have been     
okay 
       if we were prepared 
to do more 
than float 
       but we weren't

       and so 

we sank         
minute by minute 
        until eventually 
        our little vessel 
            capsized 
             with us 
                in it
