Windjammer contemplation

Seals poke their heads through the waves;

Osprey fly high in the starry night;

I am between them.

Breathing in the scent of the sea

and listening to the lapping water,

I sense balance.


In the wind, my whirring mind slows

To consider lighthouses

Or count lobster traps.


Jagged lines etch the horizons;

Waves and trees and clouds

In water colors.


Illusions of complicated obstacles:

Rigging is not tangled;

Sails let me see more.



Time to raise anchor.



Why not visit the Gulf of Maine? By taking a Maine Windjammer trip, you can help keep these classic ships stay afloat.
