Boat…a poem

there’s something about
old boats
that have been
they somehow retain their
and majesty
in spite
of being left to
and decay
some crafts
never lose
their sense of self
of better days
when the water
welcomed them
and they
were appreciated
and full of life
the same thing
can be said
of people

    Boats do seem to look great in whatever state they are in.
