Leaving the World- My first Decima


I have never written a Decima. It is harder than it looks. I used this picture for inspiration.

Leaving the World

by JE Lillie

His Boat steers into setting hope.

The sky colors a silent song.

Beneath him plays the ocean’s throng.

He remembers when he awoke.

This child of the world could not cope.

The constant running, called to dance

To entertain the god, Finance.

He left the world against its wish.

And set off for the sea to fish.

Now he sleeps on the golden strands.

    • I have relatives down there and I have always loved that stretch of beach. Watching the dolphins play in the surf is always so much fun. The picture however was taken on Guimaras in The Philippines. My son and his wife took us there after his wedding.
