Out on the Water

Out on the Water

A Poem by Fabian G. Franklin

Out on the water

Waves slap the bottom

of the boat

like a lover's stomach

in rhythm

Warm and wet

with no regret

under the stars

 

When the wake stills

Summer spills

Like a black sequined

Gown

Falling down

To the floor of earth

giving birth

To dark romances and

Other chances

As in the distance

night birds call

 

The boat drifts

With easy currents

Gently lifts and falls

Each heartbeat or breath

Revealing

From the mirror

Of black waters

Below

A clearer image of

Life

And why after all these years

The waters still heal

Suffering, stress and strife

 

Out here there is no fear

Or worry

And no hurry

To rush to and fro

No place to go

And all the time

In the wide world

To waste

Just a taste

Of something precious

 

Delirious  and oblivious

To anything more serious

Than the moon

Rising

Like a wise man

Who knows not a care

Or bother

As he settles beside me

Quietly by the boat

And the man

who came to float

Out on the water
