“The sea drives truth into a man like salt.” Hilaire Belloc

You Still Set Sail

The ocean always looks so placid until 
you notice that the boat is small, then 
everything takes on its own dimension, 
a scale of worry never thought before, 
merely armchair dreamed in fading light,
of disasters unforetold, king waves, reefs,
storms and all of that, even so, you still
set sail and go.
