A Sail To Paradise

     

Here I am Moe..

If only I could…

     I’m tired of winter and its cold weather, I think I’d like;

A SAIL TO PARADISE

I would like,

to build a boat,

I’d pray to God,

that it would float.

Then sail away,

to isle remote,

where, warm breezes blow.

 *

Where the ocean turns,

to turquoise blue,

with houses colored,

in pastel hues.

And rain arrives,

as if on cue.

But, makes way, for the stars to glow.

*

Where the sand,

is fine and white,

and music entwines,

both day and night.

And smiles real,

a most common sight.

That’s, where I’d like to go.

 *

But, alas,

I have no craft,

and barely know,

the fore, from aft.

To dream this dream,

I must be daft.

If only, wishing could make it so.

*

Then I’d set sail,

on the morning tide,

and no delay,

I would abide.

The sun and stars,

to be my guide.

Then paradise, I would know.
