Wind and Water
               Limp, dewy convas struck by a fiery ray,
                  Far off ripples forecast a windy day.
               Creaking, she leans away from the wind,
                  With its rising power, he suddenly grinned.
               The happy burble where the prow meets the ocean
                  Lifts his spirits like a magic potion.
               With iron-bound hands and sun-dark face wizened,
                  He steadies the wheel and searches the horizon.

This is from my sailing days with my brother.  My poems are meant to be read outloud.  Try it.
