Gossamer sails
on fishing boats –
in a harbor –
like a butterfly
that floats on wings
of multi-colored hue –
who’s on those –
I wonder who
operates the little fishing boats now –
and do they remember War –
are they happier now
than they were before?
How have they fared?
It would be nice if
I could have shared
this little verse with those
who fish on boats
with Gossamer Sail
but I will never know their story,
nor they, my tale.
