in the wind

seafarers seeking
the greatest, lightest burden of them all,

the spice, cocoa,
paint and dye,
the import/export—
of color, comfort,
connection,
and risk—

soaring like a fuchsia bird
in an infinite, indigo sky

beckoning,
beckoning

us to come along,
unanchored

to gather up our
castaway hearts
and leave our
shipwrecked shores
behind

  4. I love what you did with the word "ribboned" - it made my eyes float over the letters and had an incredible effect! Really made the word look like it was floating :)
