Rounding the Horn

Adventure is not safe.

Staying home presents embrace, holding me to safety.

Here I stand against the wind

Here I ebb and flow against the waves

Here the albatross mocks me

in his flight through this disturbance

against even my sanity.

Sanity is not the motivation

bringing me here

into elements not my own.

Ahead are smoother days.

Ahead.

If I can outlive

and outrun

what tempests

break against my questing heart.
