Desencontro

Desencontro

The boat launched
from a shore of awareness –
and I waiting at the sand
waved a goodbye to
something that never
could have been.

I titled this poem Desencontro – a Portuguese word meaning failure to meet, a disconnection, or discord. I love using words foreign to my native language, words that mean many things spoken in English but can be summed up in one word in another language.
