Sail On, Sailor

I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean Through restful waters and deep commotion Often frightened, unenlightened Sail on, sail on sailor -Brian Wilson Longing Hold on to the thread The currents will shift Glide me towards You know something’s left And we’re all allowed To dream of the next, Oh, the next time we touch.                                                                                          -Pearl Jam ‘Oceans’ Hemisphere  I ride the hemisphere to where the ocean meets the sky and the horizon gives birth to the newborn sun. The surf’s crashing on the shore, wave after wave pushing it forward. I hear the sound of the wind as music on the open sea and feel it caress my face. All the while it seems to drive seagulls off course as they scatter for a handout. In the distant Pelicans gracefully hover over the water’s surface or anxiously plunge dive for food. A summer storm is sure to fall in from the skyline and just as quickly fall away. Thus to smell the salt in the air touching my soul and off into the sea to heal the vessel that carries it. And at the end of the day, the vast array of stars in the night sky give sight to the moon holding secret the meeting of an endless ocean to an endless horizon. It is here that one can embrace the vastness of the universe. And it’s here I shall be…. jc The Master Within

The tides are in our veins, we still mirror the stars, life is your child, but there is in me… Older and harder than life and more impartial, the eye that watched before there was an ocean. -Robinson Jeffers

From Whence We Came

And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came. -John F. Kennedy ©jc2018-09 *Images courtesy of Pixabay

  1. Jc, you have written a beautiful eulogy to all the forces that are around us and in us. The ocean, the sky, the sun, the tidal movements. All also part of us and Earth
    Through ” Pearl James” quote I also detect a yearning for something
    As you speak in mystical language I could of course be wrong. 🙂



    1. Thank you, Miriam, for your comment. Yes, he still longs for another kiss, one more touch, but what he really wants is understanding. And he must brave all the elements to get there.
