Mast and Sail – twiglet for Misky

If I’m the mast, you’re the sail –
I mean, the thing that drives us on –
so that the wind creates momentum
and the ocean is connection –

I thought the water was a barrier,
but you see opportunity,
and I have hidden from the wind,
but you have made it energy –

but then again, I’ve held you,
strengthened you, tied you
to all these things you love,
kept you from flying too far away

losing too much, creating
too much distance. This is the power
we have together, to make purpose
out of fear and chaos. To travel.

 

 

A twiglet for Misky – a first go at a poem inspired by Miskys prompting phrase. It’s all about inspiration

  1. Oh, this is brilliant:
    “I have hidden from the wind,
    but you have made it energy”

    We just watched these crazy modern windmills in southern California as they turned and churned whatever it is they churn. Electricity, I assume. They were beautiful, almost futuristic. This is a gorgeous piece.
