You Float My Boat

You Float My Boat

A Poem by Pestonjee_
"

For her 💕

"
You floated my boat!
In sloshing puddles of rain
As soft, scented drizzle
You fell upon my muddled heart
clearing the slushy swamps
filling those sodden holes
and hollows here and there
The kiss of you brought life
to damp, soggy paper
My feelings set to sail
like crisp, colorful boats
against sharp little gusts
of an indignant wind
Though the sky still glowered
a jealous purple indigo
You wrought me a dappled
rainbow from its dregs
The darkest-dark clouds fell
and you smiled upon me
like the sun, warming every
corner of my dripping loft
That’s how you floated my boat!

A very lovely write, monsieur Pestonjee! Your poem sails in an ocean of gratitude and happiness for that special someone who has parted your stormy skies and put the wind in your sails. The horizon is now your destiny. It's wonderful to be inspired by the care of another to dedicate words such as these to them. Hopefully this special person reads this poem and is delighted by your words and efforts. Much enjoyed! :))

Thank you very much for the encouraging words.
You have a special personality, You can write with the softest most loving touch, and when it's serious, You write with the strongest one, this was sweetly delightful to read, the amazing to me is not the tender way You wrote with, but those totally splendid thoughts and expressions Your mind and heart have. You float like a feather in the sky of bliss. no doubt You are a loving and caring man, She is Lucky 💕

Paper Boats are not my idea of fun. I hate getting wet and all that. But I like this poem for its simplicity and flow. Well written.

I really enjoy the imagery here, and I think the metaphor of the rain and a paper boat is very unique, yet nails the situation perfectly. Nicely done.

Thanks JR. Hope you’re fine. Keep safe.
She's a silver lining undoubtedly! Our paper boats are too filmsy to be rowed longer than few minutes without anyone who by her/his touch could sway our boats ahead every time they get stuck. And when it happens, you'll see some nature elements being jealous! Sublime scribbling, Jee! We awaited for such writes from you, be blessed.☆☆
