A form of tumble

The start and port are in your heart.
The voyage into fantasy,
The cargo is the player's part
The captain sails for ecstasy.

The ship carries a wanting soul
And empty holes to fill its sail.
Or just perhaps some beggars bowl
Of empty passions and travail?

A phantom's ship, a phantom's sea,
Loads of wishes and desire.
A phantom's cargo bonhomie,
A hole to fill with aspires.

Some journeys span, a journey to be,
The cargo is the dreamer's art.
The captain's soul the appointee,
And home and port are in your heart.

Be it ever so humble,
I love a subtle tumble.

i love your rhythm and certainly your choice of words but i don't really get the underlying meaning... is it meant to sound a bit risque? : forgive me if i'm wrong.. Hees..

Well, I really enjoyed it...as more of a proclimation of loving..or something to that affect. Hmmmmm...maybe I'll read it a time or three more...to see if I catch it in a different light.
