Sailing to infinity

 


 

 

I feel the beat of my heart in my silence.

The flow of blood through my veins is brought to awareness.

An internal urging guides me toward an unknown end.

Cool wind caresses my moist skin.

 

My hair is tossled by the old gnarled fingers,

But gently, with affection.

The warmth surrounds me in acceptance

And bids me to move forward.

 

I struggle to step and find joints locked.

I fight and want to satisfy the internal urgings,

Yet I am still trapped unable to proceed.

Only as I accept my weakness do my limbs move.

 

Slowly, as a vessel on the water, gathering speed.

The breeze has filled my sails.

The luminous clouds fill the sky,

Lighting the way to the horizon where waits my end.
