Ships

Ships on separate courses

navigating trackless waters

Each among the finest of their kind

Crafted with loving care to fulfill separate purposes,

they plied their routes for years

delivering families,

honoring commitments,

living up to promises made

Storms came and went, as for all,

but steady hands kept courses true

through shifting winds of chaos

and loss of valued crew

On courses new but amongst landmarks known,

a chance encounter…

Intuition beyond reason

Awakening needs that might otherwise go

unrealized, unrecognized, unfulfilled

A growing trust and the blessing of safe havens

The stepwise shedding of accumulated armor

allowing once burdened vessels to sail more freely

Each proudly flying the flag of the other

Written for the wedding of my dear friends Michael and Deanna, March 1, 2009
