The arrival

I watched the sun sink in the horizon;

It was time for it to visit other places.

The gulls that squawked all day finally took wing

And roosted on the land that I would dock on shortly.

The lapping waves started to die.

Sweat stopped dripping from my tank top.

I decided to nap before I embarked on my homeward sail,

But before I put my hat over my face,

The fins began to appear.

  1. Interesting poem. I sense there is a deeper meaning to it than the obvious, and I have a few thoughts about what your meaning is. Thought provoking.

    Thank you for sharing.
