Discovery

You are the star
that anchors the constellation
I'm following in search of love
across a vast and daunting sea
that shares no inclination
about the skies above
or when landfall might be
though I can guess how far
those distant temples are

and I can see them now
shimmer in the glare of day
their bronze perfection perched
on luscious hills so firm
one could scarcely stay away
and once the coast is searched
for a qualifying quay
I'll bow while learning how
to consummate our vow.

Navigating love can be as challenging as sailing a ship in rough seas and smooth. I loved your imagery.

I always admire the rhyme schemes you pick, and how you never force a rhyme. It's friggin' awesome to read.
