Plain Sailing

Some days I’d like to sail away

On diamond studded oceans blue

A dazzle of my dreams come true

 

Horizons stretch beyond the bay

Stars for tracing, time erasing

Surrender burdens of yesterday

 

Life starts with taking breaths anew

Some days I’d like to sail away

 

 

Over at dVerse, Victoria C. Slotto has introduced the Octain Refrain, originally created by an English poet by the name of Luke Prater. The rhyme scheme is A-b-b,  a-c/c-a,  b-a

Eight syllables per line…I may have an extra one.
