Rie Sinclair Island of Loneliness

towed out (poetic thought by George_B)

towed out (poetic thought by George_B)

with time we leave 
behind memories,

while some evade,

some revisit now and then,
and some we’re towing out,
passing gravely, looking down,
to nothing in particular
sad  burden like towed out sailboats .
