~

no oars here fit my fingers,
winds, tides, don't move me:
where's the boat going

memory rocks me,
side to side, and keel to prow;
which moves: boat or clouds

i remember salt
in your long dusk kiss,
lasting until stars came out

this is age: i'm half-submerged,
half eyeless, afloat
on half-perfect grace

now, i'm spending as much time
bailing as i am rowing !

~

"the boat of age," a sonnet: published under the terms of CPOPL (Code Project Open Poetic License) © 2019, Bill Woodruff

an experiment in using 'modified haiku' form in a sonnet where each stanza contains one line of seven syllables, and two lines of five syllables. the final couplet composed of two seven syllable lines

i set myself the challenge, of making the seven-syllable line move sequentially in the order of the stanzas, beginning in line one of the first stanza, and, finally, reappearing as line one in the last (fourth) stanza ... just for fun Smile | :)
«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
