Labour of love

Adventure, art, Poetry, Sailing

Its called a labour of love

The scraping and sanding

The careful preparation and maintenance

Maintaining a thing of beauty

In this case the labour of love was my dear old boat

Crafted from Huon pine with precision and pride nearly 50 years ago

A finely crafted floating jewel box

So yes a labour of love

The fine sanding

The careful masking so the lines are crisp

The laying on of the paint and varnish

To bring her beauty alive

Yes a labour of love

Maybe it’s a metaphor for a life of love.

      1. I really like that celadon green. Or seafoam if you want to call it that. I was obsessed with this color once upon a time. What a lovely trim color for a boat. 🙂
