That’s the Way It Is

(July 17, 2009)

The Wyntje approaches across winnowing bay.

Solo, he tacks the sunset sail in a masterful way.

The rising moon- a place where men have been.

Sits over the bay as an ever present friend.

He loves the sea, he loves the stars.

He loves to tell the story all over again.

The water is smoother closest to the land.

A slender figure is silhouetted in the twilight sand.

He brings her around and salutes from his ship.

A quick nod, a hearty grin and tightened grip.

Old friends move along the garnished ocean edge.

Vox populi! Vox populi!

That’s the way it is.
