Vastness is your expanse.
As far as the eye can see.
As deep as the mind can fathom.
As cold as my touch can feel.
You have frightened me with your awesome power.
You have exhilarated me with your beautiful sun.
You have shown me those visions that words cannot describe.
Your graveyard holds horrors I cannot comprehend.
You have looked after me all of my life – My love for you is eternal.
I am yours upon my last breath...............

Thank-you Masqua....

This is my first time in this forum and I write this as I am currently onboard my vessel.

Lat: 13*58.87'S
Long: 116*11.79'E

Heading northbound towards Singapore from Western Australia with the doppler showing 5961m below me.

Life is beautiful out here - I wish everybody could experience this.

Thanks for the great feedback guys - it is very much appreciated.

Those words come very easy when your backdrop is a 360* view of beautiful deep blue "Milkpond" water with David Grey's "Sail Away" playing in the background here on the Bridge.

7 days to go & I'm back home to my better half and the kids.

Your words gave me a glimpse into your world - it sounds fascinating. I can feel the awe you experience from the mass and might of the ocean. Short and sweet. Enjoyed it, thanks for posting!

Just brilliant my friend.

As I sit here in my own inland tropical paradise, l can only imagine the wonder, beauty and fury you have seen on the ocean.

Awesome job, S&F from me.

Thanks mate - that means a lot to me.

Hope you are feeling better - ear aches are nasty, especially whilst sporting other ailments at the same time.

Beef or vegetable soup is good - steer clear of the chicken soup or people might start talking

Mate - just finished reading your poem and I must say that's the 2nd time I've shed a tear today.

Especially

I am proud that she calls me Dad.


Those words accurately convey what my heart feels - unconditional love from pure innocence.

Beautiful words my friend - makes me want to give my wife & kids a big hug right now.

I wrote that at 330 this morning, half asleep and not thinking straight. Dunno why, but it just kinda flowed out. We've been having some family issues up till about a month or so ago, so I guess it just hit home how important my girls are, even if they do drive me nuts most days.

Luckily for me the house is silent now, as all kids, pets and friends are sound asleep, and my brain is swimming after a round trip from home to Brisbane and back, somewhere in the league of 350kms. So before my keyboard becomes my pillow for the night I must bid you fair seas and give you credence to keep writing. If this is a first effort, I would marvel to see what you could acheive with a bit of practice.

Thanks Otter - this was my very first attempt at anything like this, even in school I never dabbled in literature to any great extent.

I saw all of these new posts coming through one after the other today with the [CTPWC] and wondered what all of the fuss was about.

So, I looked around on the bridge and thought "should I"

The rest is history.

Cheers mate - appreciate the encouraging comments.

And yes - the sea-going life is wonderful & unique - she is my mistress and commands my respect, of which I am only too happy to oblige.
