Chapter 1 – April is over


The captain has returned

To her ship

On voyage to victory from the dregs of defeat

Reigning o’er the land of freedom in

Pursuit of happiness, the right to bear arms

And partake in naval piercings

Umbilical regality.

A half moon holds promise

Of wholeness

Stars are cloaked

By city lights

Veiled like strangers are

Standing on opposite corners

Sharing the same street

You were there

With he and she.

I was not alone in your company

Troubled to sleep

By an odyssey

Of silent discovery.

My gift to you security


Joy shared vicariously.

Make my day
