Sea Voyage – Written February 2022 (Aged 46)

Sea Voyage

sea voyage
upon which the mirror images
of my hope travel
sea beasts
and party pieces
let us be home schooled
and educated,
by those who are more fun
iron lung,
feelings that are leaf sprung
and self esteem,
gas mark five and barely done
baby steps,
and life pointing out its tongue
we fought wars of which we wrote
some we have even won
with a tune barely sung
i travel into the meridian
my boat,
powered by indecision
hard collision, step back,
with see through vision
talk of hope and living for a mission
i am truly buoyed,
on this, experimental sea voyage

James Garratt – February 2022
