How do you like these little guys? I stumbled upon them.

Love as a balloon aloft, love as a sloop, a fine sailing ship, good images, I think.

This is the ImiLoa a sloop that berthed at the time of this picture in one of San Francisco's marinas.

There are differences in the rigging that distinguish a sloop from a cutter. Perhaps there are differences in the rigging of love as well.


When your flames lift wild
and soar as balloons, as some
do, reaching great height,
I have no choice but

That means that I must embark
and take my place here
on this sloop, a ship
not for fools but for lovers
nonetheless. True frames
are provided here, shaped
to fit the way lovers bind
each other closer.

  1. Like the poem. Relating love to sailing always works for me. The rigging just a function. The love will be the same.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
