Row Boats


stepping into the
planks shaped
into an open
concave formation
broad in the back
and rounded
from the center
towards the front
able to divide
the water
along the journey
while within
its contours
left without
a cover
a few boards are
placed above the
floor used for seating
as the arms
grab hold of ores
moving in conjunction
these rhythmic
motions match
a wave rippling by
rowing all aboard
to a location
that fulfills
ones needs
at this moment
