    It is no secret that I have a greater appreciation of a rhyme scheme and this poem flowed with the bonus of unforced rhyme without missing a beat. The imagery was also great and I would not change a thing, honestly.

    I have to agree with Michael's comment. The rhyme was unforced and it flows smoothly. I also enjoyed the content and the emotion it held. Nice work and it does not need anything, it is good as is.

      I really appreciate that. The rhyming scheme was a bit inspired by Shel Silverstein. I've always wanted the natural flow that he exhibits.

    This is a beautiful Rhyming piece, very elegant. The flow is very pretty, with a unique word display. The heart of a sailor is captivating each line. The depths of the sea are mesmerizing to the reader.

    What a powerful poem by Skyler this week. The visuals I received from this poem, swiped me out to sea. Incredible rhyme scheme as well. Just lovely!!

    I love everything about this piece. The story was wonderfully told in a unique rhyme scheme...imagery is admirable...I saw and felt the vast seas and was a little afraid, because I have a fear of deep waters. The ending stanza was heart-warming.
