Long at Sea

Long at Sea
by em claire

  • I left my home so long ago now
    that I would not recognize my own face.
    I constructed the Boat of My Life
    and I set out
    into the open sea,
    waving to all who knew
    that the seas would give me
    everything I could handle
    and everything I could not.
    And yet they waved, and I set out
    into the open sea
    in the Boat of My Life:
    built from Soul, crafted by Heart,
    and with great innocence I pushed off
    into the open sea
    and have been away from my home
    so long now that I would not recognize my own face
    but I know that Home,
    remembers me.

    From Silent Sacred Holy Deepening Heart
