Sonnet--On A Journey

if you ever change your mind, give me a ring
we’ll check out the weather to take out the boat
carrying food, clothes and other essential things
go out into the sea, whirring away we float
sleeping it out on the boat, soaking the sun in
to prevent from skin burns, I put up a shade
applying lotions, sunscreens on your fair skin
so soft, so smooth to touch, as velvety as suede

If you rather not we will go to the beach
watch the sea waves so beautifully blue
against my better judgement I slowly reach
out, pulling you into me to love all of you

just when you ask me to take you back to land
reaching for your finger, I push in the gold band!


Hmm. It seems I am hooked to sonnets!

Whatever floats your boat!

This was very romantic and sensual.
The freedom of the water is always tempered by the reassuring sight of land.

When you tugged on the gold band I wondered if that was a reassuring gesture or a firm yet subtle reminder?

It all RINGS true.
Great escape.
