TO THE SEA

Today I would like
to walk to the river,
fashion a boat
from a sheet of paper,
and set off on it
to a far distant sea.
Most would think me crazy,
but most see only the water
flowing by under the bridge,
and not the sea
that lies out of sight
beyond the horizon,
when each moment
the sea washes by
right beneath their feet.

One thought on “TO THE SEA

  1. A nice thought. I have often stared at rivers and highways wondering where the lead. And a favorite book to read to grandchildren, that emphasizes the need to wonder is, of course, Paddle to the Sea, by Holling C. Holly
