A Pale Little Ghost What can I say about this poem? I was trying to stay awake on a 12 hour watch. When I went on deck to get some air, I was reading the first chapter of "The Forgotten Spirit" by night9shade. And my mind wandered off with the ambiance around me, thinking of ghosts. So I flipped on notepad and started typing. After some coffee, I think this the final version. Thank you night9shade !

1 Process Of Drowning When one throws caution to the wind and leaps, we're often for good or ill surprised where, and how we land. But I know from experience living it, that its always going to be a journey in your life, you'll never forget.

1 A Forlorn Engineer Sometimes I wrestle with feelings of uselessness. When I can fix almost anything tangible that's broken, given only time, tools, and parts. But when it comes to emotion, or repairing a relationship, I've been unable to mend two loving, and troubled hearts.

3 Under A Sturgeon Moon An unexpected correspondence from a person once very close to me. She wanted to know with all that's been happening of late, if I was okay. Her kind letter birthed an introspection, and awoke some old feelings. Her message also inspired this offering. Strange times indeed my friends, I hope and pray that you all continue to flourish during this trying year, please stay safe.

1 Margaritaville A new port, a new poem. Maybe thinking a bit about home. About having my cake, and eating it too? A line from a old song stuck replaying in my head. "Wasting away again, in Margaritaville" All jumbled together with some early morning views of a Car-Ferry crossing this bay, as we were coming in one misty morning. Probably not a very relatable offering, but any thoughts, are welcome.

1 Sweet Seabreeze "Merrily, merrily, life's but a dream" Our real lives can at times, truly feel like the most beautiful dream, hold onto, and saver those moments for as long as you can my friends. Sadly such things come so ever more rarely as the years ebb away.

1 STARDUST I leave tomorrow, seems like a long wait till then. Whether I sleep or not the sun will rise, and I'll again find myself on a half empty plane flying south to board my ship. Part of me, strangely grateful to be going. More so then I can ever remember feeling before. Was I always blind to how things are, or did I just disembark from my last trip right into the Twilight Zone?

1 Dreams And Tears I feel so heavy I long to float again, and return to the sea. I want to breath free once more with peaceful thoughts, and restful sleep. I wish to leave behind these nightmares and salty tears. I'd so hoped for better from my neighbors, and from the young still in college. I pray we may find away to understand one another without the brutality. God bless you all, and keep you safe.

2 Paradox or Enlightenment "If I then said, that you can't believe what I say, then can't you say, that you believe what I said?" I offer here thirteen short paradoxical streams of conscious thought. Some of which have caused me to ponder the contradictions of individual perception, that can also be surprisingly true.
