We Sail

Filling the knowing darkness
the effervescent space
                                        of star light

Our souls swarm , mingling blindly
Yet with night sight
                                    We care
                                    We stir

the vast sea of lifes space between us

until our sails catch
                                     this perfumed wind.

we ride the soft waves
                                     with tears of wonder.

we barely understand.
                                      but feel.

We listen in pain
                                      and pleasure,

                                      drawn by loves whisper
       the beautiful laments of distant stars.

following our course
                                      from birth to death
we know we hear the other
                                      with rapture.

listening closely to the air

                          we rush head long

with perfumed wind
                                      we crash the waves
of laughter
                                      We sail into

                                      the Sirens song
The here
                 and there,
                                     the after
