Friday Fictioneers – Drifting on the Ocean


From the pier, I see you drifting on the ocean.

My little sailboat is calling. 

It cries out to me beckoning that I travel upon the open sea.

Let’s sail away wherever the winds take us. 

Can you feel the briny water on your sturdy bow?

I feel the oceans salty breeze upon my face, a special caress.

Aimlessly we’ll sail along finding new passages of adventure.

Discovering magical islands where rest and solace are key, and rainbows create a peacefully blissful scenery. 

Enchanting islands will embrace me as they appear, while images of amicable islanders wave a welcome greeting.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

    • I’m pleased to see you hear, aFrank. Of course, during this isolation period it’s nice to remember where I find my peace and tranquility. I’ll post a url for something I think you’ll find interesting since you’re a cruiser.
      Are you still blogging? Resa said she misses your ability to connect everyone. I’ve been away since December. I think I missed many things that have happened. Please add the url that explains it all. I’ll be sure to pop over. Thank you for commenting and visiting. Stay Safe … Be Healthy … Be Blessed

    It seems I’ve fallen away from some people since Frank stopped blogging. I miss him, and how he created community!

    • I think we’re all where we need to be right now. There’s no place like home to feel safe and cozy. Maybe, this is what was needed for us to appreciate these homes we work so hard to get and never seem to take the time to do so. There’s a chang’ a comin’.
      Gracias, mi amiga … Isadora 😎

  10. Querida Isadora,

    I swear I felt the salty breeze on my own face and smelled the scent of it. Lovely verse and a reminder of the good that’s still out there. Gracias, mi amiga.

    Shalom y bendita pascua,

    • Querida Rochelle,
      I adore being out on the ocean. I find it envigorating. I miss going to the beach. It was a twice weekly thing at the least. I could write, read or listen to the waves. I’m happy you felt the breeze. Enjoy until we can once again. Happy Passover
      Shalom y Abrazos,
      Isadora 😎


I'd Love to hear what you think. Thanks ...
