The Blue Captain of the Captain

O Captain my Captain

Blue horizon as far as the eye can see

Orotund splashing of a joyous dolphin

Deep Neptune profoundly advises me

 

Audacious waves ferociously battle

Maelstroms swirl in the brine of the beyond

In the ride through life the wisdom of the ocean is my saddle

Riding distantly from those who I am not fond

 

Peace dominates a breezy, salty morning

Breathing slows and busy mind walks a nebulous path

Habitual driblets follow waves crowning

I can't reward myself with a beach sighting until I finish my math

 

My poetry was never the best

Yet I've learned that learning materalizes in unique ways

The most pure kinds of beauty don't pass a written test

And the clarity of the ocean keeps cloudy decisions away

 

 

This poem is about: 
Our world
