Crank the anchor, stare as it lifts,
magical boat sails to then drift.
Powerful views cause thoughts to shift,
unplanned hiatus, cruises swift.
Winds rock the boat from here to there,
life shakes me up and feels unfair.
Tears lost at sea, where no one cares,
absent from life yet still aware.
I grab the steer, balanced at once.
then trim the sail to tie each knot.
Harmonize with my offbeat heart,
convince fate to change story plot.
Waves carry us to where we land,
both keel and feet enjoy the sand.
This life is sweet, from where I stand,
infinite destiny at hand.

Nice flow. This reminds me of sailing when I was a kid.
Thanks so much. Glad it brought you memories.💕
TBH, sailing by myself alone in my dingy was my only solace. When I was not sailing I had to deal with an abusive alcoholic father and nothing but bullies on my block, so sailing was my escape.
Sorry you had to experience such hard times but so happy you found an escape.💕
Absolutely marvelous. You took me on a fabulous flight…delightful to find one’s feet after much heartache…thank you, Grace.
