I am a sailor

I am moving
Slow, steady motion
Yet, yacht quavering
Trying to equilibrize
Standing on the deck
I see vastness
Bluish beneath
Wild blue yonder
All around
Not a soul
Voice of wind
Yet, deadly silent

Salty air, saline breath
Sonic, tidal waves
Kissing the sides of kitesurfer
Wind caressing my face
Tranquility hugging my heart

I go to the edge
Sudden stumbling of yacht
Almost death
Holding on to the railing
Erratic heart beat
I keep my stance
Eyes wide open
Trying to take in
The immenseness
Scenic horizon
Seemingly endless
Never felt before

Heart thudding
Yacht wobbling
Trying not to collapse
Gigantic, unpredictable waves
Assault of tempest
Raging sea
Fierce iciness
Frost nipping on body
Sticky and drenched
Eyes barely open
Death right here

Sun high above
Sweltering purlieu
Eyes squintched
Haunting memories
Relentless night
Standing up on the deck
Land ahoy!
Slowly making way
Securing the yacht
I reach destination

Grin on face
I turn around
Looking at the ocean
Glittering under the sun
A sight to behold
Taking in everything
Grin broadens
As I realize
I found myself
I fell in love

A passionate reader and an aspiring author, I love evincing my thoughts and opinions through words. Playing with words is an art many can try but very few are able to express. It is an intriguing and interesting art, I wish to master.

Balancing and Enjoying Work Life

I am happily married with three grown children and I have been working professionally for several multi-national corporations. One of the most important thing I learn in life is "perseverance". Life is full of challenges and with each challenge there is always the opportunity to learn from it. With enough drive and patience we always overcome these challenges. I have learned and collected enough life experience that I decided to share them on my blog. All that I ask of you is to join follow along and maybe you learn a few things or two. Or you can also teach me a thing or two!
