Clandestine Love

Boats Leaving the Harbor - painting by Claude Monet

Clandestine Love

What if we meet on sparkling waters
just before end of day
in sailboats side by side
gliding never touching
in a clandestine ballet
our secret safe
with only white-tipped splashes
against wood-planked sides
to telegraph our love
in exciting ripples
only we can see.

    Outside of living for my six children, a clandestine love was all that kept me sane for a few years back in the 1960s. I've told it all in a poem, "If I".

  2. I wrote one of clandestine love awhile ago, I'll have to look it up. Not sure of the title though. I like how you used two ships alluring each other in love!

  3. You are the ultimate romantic Jo. Very good!

  4. Dear Jo,
    CFIDS and FMS are not the same disease. I love your newest poetry.
    I posted an article on my blog on CFIDS/FMS. Keep up the good work.
