Can you imagine living on an old boat
along a well traveled canal in Amsterdam?
Watching the days come and go as cruisers float by
Staring into your windows // taking pictures of you
Tired of waving // you just ignore them all…
like a passing freight train in your backyard.
Perhaps it’s the mystique or the novelty of it all
Winter, Spring. Summer. and Fall
The old boat sees it all…

Today at d’verse, Sarah asked us to write a poem related to boats. I thought of our trip last summer, which I have mentioned before, and our canal cruise in Amsterdam. I was amazed at how many people lived in old boats tied up along the canal. This is just a glimpse of what we saw that day.
