TN Poetry | Voyager

Life can be a storm you can see coming that you get to prepare for or it can be a sudden deluge that takes you by surprise and leaves you scrambling for cover. It can be clouds that are heavy and dark with ominous energy or it can be clear, fresh air with the promise of new sunshine.

Life can be filled with cleansing rain or it can be winds that bluster and sting. It can be soft morning dew with endless moments to admire or it can be wishing you could chase away midnight just to give you a little more time. Life can be like a voyage spent on the ocean …

Poem by Molly from Transatlantic Notes called ’Voyager’: “Navigate the stars and oceans of what was, and sail among what could be. Find yourself somewhere between longing and living, embrace the rough and the quelled sea. Taste the salt and chase the wind, sing with the birds at sunrise. Give time for mists to linger, then seek harbour under dark skies. Befriend the waves both high and low, let the cold dance over your skin. Warm yourself in fresh daylight, exhale the dawn and begin.”

Where is your voyage? What life advice would you share?

  1. How lovely.

    Life advice eh? OK, when it comes to criticism, only listen to those whose opinion you value (and even then, evaluate it and decide whether to act on it). If you don’t value somebody’s opinion then dismiss it and move on.

    Oh, and be a Coffee Drinker and Cacophonous Laugher 🙂


  2. Wow, this is a powerful poem. I love it! My life advice is to go with the flow… don’t stress about what might happen tomorrow or what happened yesterday.
