i yearn for a tranquil moment

I yearn for a tranquil moment
To be out upon the sea of harmony,
In that enchanted boat.
Oh, boatman, do you know my heart?

~The Sarashina Diary (Diaries of Court Ladies of Old Japan)

A small section of the Pacific Ocean along the Oregon coastline (2010) and a poem from The Sarashina Diary submitted in response to Travel with Intent’s six word challenge.

    1. Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts . A sailor told me that there are times the Pacific is tranquil…on the surface…and that the Indian Ocean can be like glass. As my breath becomes in sync with the waves…tranquillity. _()_
