Sailors

sailors we be
the stars above beckon
in the dark sea

My e-book, Silver Morning Song, is free on Amazon this weekend, Nov 22-26th, so if you enjoy reading inspiring poems and short stories, do pick up your copy.

Here’s the book blurb:

“Silver Morning Song is a celebration of the delightful world around us, together with stories of the foibles and complexities of the creatures that occupy it. Here you will find accounts of folks facing decisions, rumors, health issues, temptations, anger, envy — and you’ll see the wisdom granted to help them find their way to a solution.

Through parables and short stories, in a voice sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, the writer shares valuable insights into human nature and Christian living, interspersed with poetic descriptions of the natural world and the changing seasons.”

Fandango’s prompt word for today is COMPACT.
Traveling on a shoestring budget back in the 60s, with two teens, two pre-teens, and two parents squeezed into that car for the night, COMPACT is a fitting word. Good thing most of the nights were clear so we could open windows. 🙂
