The journey has taken me

So far beyond the course I set

In my arrogance

Of maps and compasses

And bright northern stars

I fancied myself navigator

Setting the direction

And correcting the course

When the winds

And the tides

Held their own ideas

And set this journey

Before me

I return

Though I ride against currents

Too many years

Fighting the wind

I return

Harnessing waves and motion

To bring me home

At last – Caroline A. Slee
