Infinite diamonds sparkle sparkle from the waves,
the hull travels through space.
Before you the destination beckons,
a promise.
Around you the world turns,
clouds above telegraph your day,
waves mimick and whisper there hidden secrets.
Your manmade surroundings are insignificant.
There is only your spirit.
and your movement.
The winds of your spirit soar.
You are balanced. You exist:
and with the grace of God,
you move.

Gui,
I like the bit about when the kids leave home. The way kids are these days you might just get that Ketch at the same time as the walking stick and a pension.
