  • 1. The Neverending Sail Words & Pix by Eva de Lourdes Easter Sail , 10-13 April 2009 Caribbean Sailing School & Club Cruise onboard L o l i t a – Cream and Crimson
  • 2. The Neverending Sail
    • It starts in-between somewhere
    • sailing into Culebra
    • passageway of the Tradewinds
    • currents churned to Fajardo
    • our sails beat winds and currents
    • to the island of dreams we dare
  • 3. The Neverending Sail
    • Darker than dark our sailboat
    • Yemayá may protect us
    • Virgin of Cobre guides us
    • into light and dark Dewey’s
    • moonrise reflected waters
    • cream and crimson, blinded by night, float
  • 4. The Neverending Sail
    • Sunrise to Culebrita
    • filling our sails with whispers
    • sea songs, lullabies, chanteys
    • Silencing motors, cities
    • and other modern slavers
    • unreal, alien onboard Lolita
  • 5. The Neverending Sail
    • The degree, the right angle
    • that corner in the ocean
    • when all the sails must dance, tack
    • to Culebrita’s lighthouse
    • no signal, no service, bliss
    • full tango lines or lines that tangle
  • 6. The Neverending Sail
    • Captain Bob, soaring eagle
    • harp strings on vertical wings
    • Puff the magic dragon kite
    • caressing corals and rocks
    • with keel vibes, bubbles and foam
    • spirit dancing midst cloud and seagull
  • 7. The Neverending Sail
    • The lighthouse, the hill, the trees
    • white beach and gracious palm trees
    • moment of beauty, Earth sings,
    • “ Love me, don’t disturb me, you’re
    • embraced in my arms of blue.”
    • Siren voices greening skies and seas
  • 8. The Neverending Sail
    • Predator, victim, Earth shares
    • life, death, life neverending
    • interspecies communion
    • man, woman, turtle, stingray,
    • barracuda aft sailboat
    • Do I, do you, does Earth—who cares?
  • 9. The Neverending Sail
    • It ends right where it started
    • same island but wilder side
    • castle rocks shield the lighthouse
    • gusty winds on bimini
    • memories of rainbow flights
    • sailors’ souls soared while minds just farted
