Unmoored

I’m adrift now; swaying back and forth with
the movement of the tides
Rudderless and without sail and yet
free of all care or concern or consideration
The stars all fell from the sky in one dying blaze
and now no longer illuminate the way
to the unknown destination. I am at the mercy
of these tidal flows
The current drives me to and fro
bobbing on the endless ocean with
no land in sight, just horizons of cold grey sea
and the random rise and fall of the coracle
There’s a leak in the bow, and I have to bail
from time to time the water that laps my feet
but I feel no fear – no terror holds me –
just the infinite ocean and wordless songs
Though I am lost – drifting and alone
all dread and panic has fled my resolute stare
I am become one with the briny main
I am become one with the wind and the water
I am become one with the storm
