First Day

In by Chris on January 28, 2009 at 12:54 am

Land ho!

And I thought it was

As the waves tossed us to and fro

But clouds, clouds

There was only ocean there.

The sextant, the salt everywhere

In my tangled hair

And I couldn’t sleep again at night

For fright

For the sight of the stars

The ocean we sailed

Was a world apart

A grand universe

Where anything might be found.

Yes it is true

One day I saw a fish

Leap over a wave.

But the waves, the waves, the waves

Strike the bow the same way

Day after day after day

Oh sea, where are we?
