Nomadic sailors set adrift,
Faceless names in failing ships,
Endless paths through endless seas,
Sailing through infinities.

Two bows brush in darkest night,
Two hands touch in briefest flight,
Two souls meet unwittingly,
Small islands in a cyber sea.

A lantern lit by dual consent,
A ray of light both never meant,
Small beacon few can understand,
In search of welcome distant land.

Two boats joined in single ship
By hearts upon a common trip,
No longer faceless entities,
One island in a cyber sea.

Two ships once foundering by night,
Mainsails enjoined, light winds' delight.
Two reefs of sand one cyber isle
With hearts resounding, vibratile.

One lantern yields enlightenment
Held tandemly by night's descent.
A beacon from twilight to morn
In passion's wake, new journeys born.

No distant land may lie beyond;
All shores succumb to common bond.
Sojourn as one, with sail a'furl,
The sea shall hold no hidden pearl.

Embarking hence from worldly mere,
Life's trek from cyber sea to sphere
To waft new trails as life may wend
In quest as one, the rainbow's end.

Truly amazing work, Ron. Few have been the moments when I could look upon your work with the time to enjoy each nuance, each semantical wordplay, each scancion.

And Nan...wonderful reply in wisdom's array...very enlightening, and joined seamlessly with Ron's original work. Bravo!

Can't wait to see how this new forum goes...gonna be a big hit.

ron. nice work here. I liked the imagery and such but the word infinities seems a little bit of a stretch to me. but that's just my opinion. other than that I liked that poem. and this forum is pretty nice as well. I'm looking it over and sending little tidbits of things to nan. she'll let you know what I have to say. I think. hehehehe

Wonderfully done Ron (you too Nan). The rhyme and meter met beautifully with the nautical theme.

Can this man do everything? Is he the Potentate of Poetry? I think yes. Ron, you write such lovely, wonderful poetry (and your prose ain't shabby either). And you've created a home for the passionate poets that is utterly fantastic. I'm going put your name down as a write in candidate for President of the United States! Imagine what a better place this would be if President Ron Carnell was in charge! Thanks for the great poem and the grand home! (excuse me, it's time for my anti-gush shot!)

Oh my Ron....
You made my heart skip a beat. However silly that may sound. I couldn't have said it better if I had written that myself. You captured a very strong emotion there. What a beautiful sentiment. From a woman who found love on the cyber seas.....sigh....how wonderful.
Enough mush...I did want to say how much I'm enjoying the new forum. This is truly exciting. Keep up the great work Ron!!

What a pair Ron and Nan, a duo ...
So much from these two. Oh!
While all the rest of us hustle and bustle to do what we can...
the best we can do is follow Ron and Nan!

I can't believe this thing came back around after all this time, and I hadn't even commented on it the first time ! What was I thinking? It inspired me to write my Keystroke Lover, I guess I was in such a hurry to grab a pen, I forgot to tell you how exquisite this piece is -- sorry ! I'm glad I finally got around to it, and very glad to see this back up at the top where it belongs!

My most humble appreciation to you all - and especially to my dear friend, Ron - for inspiring my repartee.....
I'll bet that none of you knew - This was the very first poem posted on the new Passions Forums.... Several days before they were opened up for all to enjoy... I'm truly happy that you all have enjoyed this one so much...

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.
