Motivational prose by the pirate...

When the seas get rough,
You will hear the land lovers bellow,
Hard to port!
Hard to starboard!

When the skies darken,
The land lovers see shadows and holler,
All stop!
Reverse engines!

When the seas are calm,
The land lover begs for a port of call,
Any port!
Any place!

When the seas get rough,
When the skies darken,
Even when the seas are clam,
The sailor of life will set sail.

The sailor of life knows,
Only forward motion,
Advance action,
Will get you to your home port.

It begins it. I have been here before, as I could tell.
For finding: that myself I have reborn
But not seen, is forever to persist
To gather around the seasons of space with the everlastingness of event
With the layered energy as it is made of things.
Into the logical fiber of the tribute: a thought arises
And stays on course, slowly progressing, not done.
By fear: the fear thatís been since forever,
In the same space the inseparable normal good
Being passed through mankind
Came accessible to me: I fade into remoteness

It is a long time between poems for a sailor that needs to say so much, and the seas are impatient, murmuring with arriving waves at the shore for you to write your name...and hers, on the wet sand.

Thank you for reminding me...

This is wonderful and inspiring prose. Words flow to movement of the sea, only a sailor could show. Some fear darkness, others fear unknown but ah the mystery of the sea, only a sailor could tell. And amazing photo to compliment your prose. Thanks for sharing. My best, Gloria

Sailing at sea seems to be an ongoing journey for the sailors. They only stop to take a break. Their lives belong to the sea.

Most of life is much like that...when things are calm, wonderful and relaxing..we can't get enough..when the waves are pounding us, and the winds are blowing in our faces with enough force to take our breaths, it doesn't take us long, before we're ready for shelter. Strong and sturdy.
If it weren't for the 'sailors' of life, that are willing to face these storms, we'd be lost at sea for sure.
This holds a mighty lesson..Great write!
