Everything I Need to Know About Life, I Learned from My Boat

Boat2

You have to pick up speed so the boat will plane,
allowing you to see where you’re going.

Boatphoebe

When you need to pass
– and you will –
always pass on the Right.

Boatwake

The faster you go, the less wake you leave.

Boat3

You have to be in gear to steer.
Neutral just won’t get you anywhere.

Boatview

Sometimes one battery is enough.
Other times you have to turn the button to the “all” position
and give it all the juice you’ve got.

PetrifiedPinecone

a petrified pinecone.

yes, really.

to see this pinecone
is to see an altar.
a special space
that’s nestled inside layers
of fierce protection
from the outside world.
a space filled
with layers
and lightning
and shifts
and color
and sparkle
and spaciousness
and i think yes,
that’s what an altar is.
a place –
even a place
in the center
of the usual daily hubub –
where we can go
to mark a space for ourselves,
where we can define
(perhaps to ourselves)
what’s most important
right here, right now,
where we can lay claim to
our most sumptuous selves.
