Sailing

I sail in my tiny boat,
skimming across the water,
gleaming in the sunshine,
brighter than all the lights
of a Broadway show —

I am a star,
casting radiance into the space before me,
shimmering over the surface of the lake,
across the bow,
up to and far beyond the billowing canvas —
unloosed, set free,

connected to earth
through water and light,
discovering,
revealing
the secrets hidden
under the stillness
of this flowing rush.
