Once I plotted my course

on nautical charts -

I used the sun and stars

to fix

                my position in the world

To move, like night, from sea to sea

They see me

Haze distanced

Lost to all and love

Hull down, alone

Eternally to drift

To tide or current whim

Sometime becalmed


Sometime storm blasted

Now Autumn tides ebb



In the Winter storms

                my old life invades the new

Waves crash past the strand
