The sailboat

How simple, yet complex
The sailboat is
Each part essential
Time tested solutions
To the problems
Of how to go
From here to there
With wings of cloth
Flying through the air
Yet swimming too
With fins of metal
Across vast oceans blue
Touching and caressing
Each land
On our planet Earth
Afloat in a vast
Heavenly sea of stars

Men of all times
Looked to the heavens
to find their way
Knowing the signs
Placed skyward
To guide them
Over infinite waves
Disappearing into the horizon
Where all dreams lay

Now electrons too small
For senses to know
Carry the messages
From man made stars
Too insignificant to shine
A matrix of ideas
Dividing the earth
Into precise little squares
As addresses
In a metropolis
For all to know
With the need to go
From here to there

Re: The sailboat

Flags of many nations
Stood proud marking
The presence of a fresh breeze
Beckoning sailors
To weigh their anchors
Hoist their sails
Sail from safety
In search of their dreams
Each so different
Yet always the same

Re: The sailboat

SNUG HARBOR

A restless spirit
Awaits a gentle breeze
To excite a dormant heart
Lost in a mind
Of precious thoughts
Afloat in a sea of souls
Anchored only to dreams
Too impossible to find
In any snug harbor
The sea swells
Recalls the gentle breath
Of spent love rising
From within
To rest
amongst
the stars

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
