Response to a dream

If human emotion is like an ocean

we are all the sailers

and ships captains

some set adrift

at the mercy

and fury of the waves

some pirates looting the bounty

of others

some courageous explorers

encountering all manner

of life and untold shores

some when trouble abounds

turn their ship in that direction

and set course for the

dangerous waters

in this way they explore for themselves

the atolls and jetties

the wave breaks and sand bars

and the curious and fearful

monsters of the deep

and in this way

they become familiar

and unafraid.
