Poem80.Sail on a leaf..

Sail on a leaf..

Was swimming all alone
with fierce loneliness
tried to look across
saw just water more.

A leaf came to me
as I was drowning blue.
Tired and half lost
no energy to fight.

Got onto ,without thinking
boats were moving
ships were sailing
but, none was stopping.

Unknown leaf owner
acknowledged, a head shake
handed me with another
one of his rows spare.

Shaking the row in water
tried to learn it safer
no punch laugh or jokes
silent,safe but serious.

Anger tension always abode
but ,sails always secure
has on mind that am there
won't take risks anymore.

Gratefulness or love
what should I have
for looking after me
when no body was there.
