Boats Retired

Boats retired
No longer worthy of the wet
Cast aside
on far side of some building kept

A glum look
if only boats had faces
Blankly staring
wishing for yesterday’s traces

Coldly decaying
more paint off than on
Harsh reality
Life as known is forever gone

Forgotten craft
once star of film reverie
Childhood remnant
Little told fireside story

Caught sleeping
on overcast morning saunter
Beautifully captured
Modest celluloid treasure

shot on film, Canon A2E, 1999  ♦  Lago di Braies, Italy
