Sailing Solo in the Sea of Life

 

 

Thinking of vast and endless ocean spaces

 

Thinking of terrifying storms and rocks and sharks

 

Thinking of freezing icebergs and lonely doldrums

 

Thinking of biting rain and sleet and hail

 

Thinking of sparkling waves and golden sunsets

 

Thinking of crystal waters and crunchy sand

 

Thinking about the slap of sail, the thud of a motor

 

Thinking about the swinging needle of the compass and the destination

 

Thinking about life and frightening sea serpents and sirens

 

Thinking about life and terrifying pirates

 

Thinking about life and dark storms at night

 

Thinking about life and uncharted shallow waters

 

Thinking about life, the far horizon and the unknown beyond

 

Thinking, thinking, thinking
