To cease the sailing of destiny ~
















Along a sea of blue, we sailed on endlessly ~            
Having dreams that others, would join our sailing too.     
The thoughts we share so seamlessly ~       
Give rise to all we do.                           

Along a 'see' of life, and of it's destiny ~
As we are moving faster, than light would have us know.  
A treasure offered you and me ~           
Completed long ago.

Shadows casting darkly, on rocky shoals below ~
We need not fear the presence or absence of life.
To cease in all the worlds we know ~
We cease with all the strife.


~ Or if you prefer... a song ~

  1. I've just seen, yesterday, a new fully see-through boat on TV from which you can watch what goes on underneath you when you sail :) It's delightful!

    1. Thank you Linda Kay. The boats look like they're gliding through the air.

  3. I thought this was about Moby-Dick at first. Who, me? No, I'm not obsessed.

    1. Hi Billy. The secret to understanding the poem is to read the first and third sentences together. Then read the second and fourth sentences together. It broaches the topic of 'reincarnation'.

      I didn't intend it to appear cryptic(smile) but it has a twist or two. I'm really glad you liked it, and stopped in to say so.

  6. Dixie, are those boats meant to be floating in the air? Of course, the shadow could be on the sea-bed because the water is so clear but the effect is stunning!
    So is the poem.....
    (I always had a blind-spot for Christopher Cross)

    1. Hi Bazza. I agree the photo is stunning. That's the reason I kept it in a larger format. You click on it and the black background adds to the 'pop'. It's an illusion.
      I'm really happy you enjoyed the poem(smile).
      Cross has done some interesting orchestrations. Strangely, over here, is music was popular until people saw him. They thought he was ugly... and his sales went down. Not very complimentary of the music public, I think.
      Thank you!

  7. Hey, DIXIE POLKA, what happened to the blog bit with the baking cookies and the Mark Gungor video? It was there just a couple hours ago, because I left a comment on it.

  8. Fantastic poem. I like the 'see' of life reference. Personally, when it comes to sailing, I prefer this haunting aria. But we all have our preferences.

    1. I don't know why I always feel a loss of what to say to you two. Your genius, the gift of pithy zone... I just don't have the wit to wit... to where my mind must go to get there... but it will go-oh... Southpark - belov-ed home town.

      Thank you - you must visit again. Bring shrimp for the barbie... yes - her.

    2. South Park the show - definitely better than South Park the town.

      We just like to keep things fun and light. It's so much better than simply leaving a generic compliment and blowing along on the trail, isn't it? I hope so.

      And crap, I always get that mixed up. I actually brought a Barbie for the shrimp. The shrimp's still hungry, though, right? Otherwise this doll is gonna go to waste.
