Patience

Even if the wind blows east
and the sails are tied up tight
memories of a storm this summer
stirs up butterflies
The might of the ocean
and its vacillating moods
a naughty sprite one moment
an irascible Poseidon the next.
Patience, sailor, patience
when I set sail
I closed my eyes and prayed
the ocean is what it is
my boat is what it is
and only with time will I learn
the true nature of the ocean,
of the boat, and of myself.

I think there are a lot more people, but they just don't know what to say to your intense "ramblings" :-D.

Deeps is very true..You are at higher levels and i am dumb found while reading your poetry. But i feel proud. This is my 'dodo' who had a crane's nose (kodu mooku) when he was a small kid..
