Sailing Ships

Cowering beneath salty crests
measuring the distance between oceanic swells
Quadrangular deceptions
colorful runes & soulful tunes
Membership dues & power plays
dangling differences & similarities
like charms on a bracelet
heralding a place where stories begin

Rhythmic arrangements
in the voice of a stranger
remaining cool, calm & collected
in the face of impending danger
with me childlike in my manners
substantially passive in nature
indifferent toward yesterday’s passing
looking forward to morning’s sun rising
