Boatswain’s Oar – A Poem

Image by njbateman526 from Pixabay

Seasonal helms of thanksgiving; a boatswain’s oar,

Steady decks of cruise-ships tossed in life’s candor.

Unspoken kindness; compassion’s dwindling paddle

Reaps a surging ocean ride on discomfort’s saddle.

Blanket might-have-beens; driftwood to the soul,

Wring moisture from the leaves in comfort’s bowl.

Philosopher’s stones rubbing the sands of the wise,

Return diamonds as grace clasps in strings of pearls.
