Look! Out there –

just at the horizon -
the ship that carries everything
I hope for
and everything I dread.
That slow ship
that was just a dot
in the mist
seems to head this way
with the wind at her back.

I should say that the digital photo-montage attached is made up of a couple of my own photos, highly modified, plus the ship image, which I lifted from somewhere online, which is one of several ships to have sailed under the name "Rijndam". Another of my value-added creative thieveries.
