Fast Day 315 June 23 2013 Sailboats


Neuropteran wings, wings of water,
sensible, discerning waves that break;
the lake’s great heart vessel extends
the entire length of the river’s back.

I watch the majestic panjandrum progress
of spinnakers filled by the southern wind
slowly move upstream; how wonderful to see!
Better yet be on the crew and feel
the governance of capstan and sail.
Better than an argonaut, the boat itself to be:
ligaments all whirlygig
goose-wing, scudding, fleet,
all straining to be free.

While watching a sailboat on the St Clair River early 6/24

neuropteran  -  having nerves in the wings
