Salt and Sea – A Poem

How long do we stargaze?

Boating away to some far off

As dust covers us

And leaves us forgotten.

We exist within our own.

The sea is not tranquil

As we breathe in ourselves an ease

That does not take to the waters.

How delicate a process

To wither in depths

She was old and tired,

That hull of mine,

Yet on she sailed.

Into, into, into,

Away, away,

Until the sun became a blindfold,

A new boat on the horizon.
