Going Adrift

I've lifted anchor
Though my voyage is upon a raft
The waters out to sea are calm and slow moving
I float slowly from the shore
The water not yet deep enough that I couldn't just leap
and walk back to shore
Heartened and scared, thankful for the calm sea moving me slowly
Still tied to what is behind me yet ready to go

This one got me all emotional. Nice poem JS. Very expressive.

Lee: thank you for the compliment; sorry didn't get to say much to you Sunday.

Sail on, sail on, sailor. Let that coracle take the current.
