The Last Supper

29 December 2009 | Rabbit & Redhead Islands, Antigua
All too soon it was time for "E" and "M" to leave. Our last night together was spent at the cozy little anchorage between Rabbit and Redhead islands. Turns out there's more than one poet in the Magneson household...check out Eric's portrayal of their time aboard Scappatella:

Stardate: 12/30/09

It's blue on blue on blue
under a young damselfish sky,
Moonbright above, dangling its
toes in lulling sea.

Sigh and clap of wave on
reef and shore
There is turtle talk and Ballyhoo,
wine and laughter, guitar and song.

Frigate and tropic bird aloft and
full sails and creaking sheets.
There is expanse of horizon and
wondrous creatures below.

There are feasts and swirl and
weave of sea grass and conversation
into the night.

Reach of moon,
Reach of friendship over sea
they arc and pulse together.

- Eric Magneson
