The boat floats in the calm blue sea
There appears to be no-one in it and I wonder how it came to be
It is baron but with both of its oars intact and its new paint, it looks beautiful and not to approach it takes some restraint
As I marvel at how the light shimmers on the calm ocean
I take a deep breath to release pent up emotion
As I observe the boat floating and for a fleeting moment I wonder if it is here for me?
Is this the vessel I should board in order to be free?
But instead of moving towards it I just observe, wondering if this peaceful existence is better seen from afar and instead of causing ripples,
I should instead preserve this moment, as all sea men will tell you that on the ocean the waves are never too far away and maybe what I need instead is more gratitude for this day...
