Dreamscape - Poem on de-stressing

Posted on November 9, 2020 at 8:12 AM by Stephen Prestesater


In a boat steeped
with views of cedars,
ladyfish and pelicans,
the din of oar strokes melds
with the beat of my heart.

Marsh scents,
alligator nests,
swamp grass,
and distant views
set a course to happiness.

Wavelets pulsate
like a fifty's song,
breathing life
into every corner
of my small boat.

The anchor swing lazily
to the tune of wind and tide.
Slowly, I lay back
and take it all in.
My spirit lives in this place.
