loveship

tall ship
you are the compass
that offers direction
you are the rudder
that shifts the course
you are the sails
that bear life forward
you are the the mast
that holds aloft

you are the scope
showing far futures
you are the anchor
preventing drift
you are the wood
making it whole
you are the pitch
supporting this

and who am I,
in all of this
not deck, nor crew, nor captain,
or compass, rudder, sail or mast,
or scope, wood, anchor, pitch:

For we are us
and us is buoyed
on waves of serendip.
beyond harbour is danger,
but that’s why we built
this something else loveship
