The Navigator

Once I plotted my course

on nautical charts -

I used the sun and stars

to fix

                my position in the world


Once my ship sailed the seas

by my compass course -

I drew lines on a map

to guide

                me through far off seas to port


Once I was the pilot

steering from the bridge -

But she altered my course

Life is a Map

Life is a map,

scaled to fit ones horizons.

Cities are a woven web of avenues,

with vines and branches that spread.

Roads, train tracks, canals, rivers, lakes and mountains

mark their territory with a tracery of lines.

They weave a pattern like the doodling of a bored giant.

Take a line for a walk.

Draw me a path home.
