Tall needles, grown in soil, afloat spike sky;

Sails trim for trip and fill; the ketch is still in view

From bridge; eyes mist to see it passing by —

Breeze makes the wake a trail, my lost love pointing to.

    Thank you for a new word (ketch) – I wonder if in some paradoxical way being lost can give us a sense of direction – to be found or find something again?

      I nearly made it a sloop, but that would have been a sloop-up because those only have one needle … er, mast.
      Depends on character, I suppose. Some people pull themselves up by their bootlaces; others go into permanent mope..

    There are occasions of sadness to contend with in life. It is not to be smooth sailing all the time! Very true colonialist!
