"Boat" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was “Boat.” I went in an unconventional direction, but this is where my muse took me. If I get time, I might make another entry, because I started another postcard for this theme, but haven't completed it yet. Today is a top 10 day here, so now I need to enjoy the outdoors.

The words are from the poems Inland and Exiled by Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Searching my heart for its true sorrow,
This is the thing I find to be:
That I am weary of words and people,
Sick of the city, wanting the sea;
People the waves have not awakened,
Spanking the boats at the harbor's head...

What do they long for, as I long for
One salt smell of the sea once more?

Screaming to God for death by drowning--
One salt taste of the sea once more?

This is terrific! It is unconventional, but fits the theme perfectly. The poem is very compelling. I like this one best.
