I have navigated life’s
treacherous shoals
my destruction hidden
below shallow waters
now wanting to tack again
to open seas, buck windward
taking wind at my bow
courage setting a new course
leading the way from
superficial depths, into
profound soundings, darker blue
wisdom my path, divine helm
bearings, ever guiding me
my lodestar of love, orienting
the sparkling heavens.
