”Pax”

”Pax”

Witness of a moving past
you hear the silent noises of her wood
as the halyard strikes the mast
tries to reveal her history
in a language we do not know

From the intense genesis
the continental change
to the cradling in her berth
you can smell her spirit
hear a sound through the rig

Even though boats cannot talk
her wood does tell the story
while you feel the glory of her days
the love of her soul
