Sailing Through Storms

 

“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.”
― Vincent van Gogh

 

Sailing home
tho I feel the storm arising
see the clouds on the horizon
and yet I know my way
I’ve been made aware of danger
got the warning from a stranger
who approached me yesterday

 

Been awhile
since I landed here among you
an old man whom you found new
and yet I miss my home
Still I stayed learned and taught
our common enemies I fought
together still alone

 

Here you all gather
to see me on my way
asking questions I must answer
tho I don’t know what to say

 

Still I speak on
my answers you all measure
perhaps you’ll find some treasure
keep part of me behind
It’s the least I can do
speak my words, see it through
It’s not as if I mind

&nbsp

Stormy journey
and yet I know it is time now
say goodbye, take my last bow
turn away and set sail
for my home it does call me
once fettered and now free
I must do my will
__ G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

      1. Rockin’! And, as the weather always washes through, washing up on the shore after the storm has broken is all but assured. Sometimes we even stand up strong through the whole thing. Sometimes we even open our eyes when we wash up. Though, if we don’t, then on to something else already, huh? I like weather, though I also like the roller coasters at the fair.
