ONE THOUSAND MILES

A single step,
followed in succession
by another. And another.
We are travelers all,
in this journey called life
we will navigate through
choppy waters, guided by
constellations a compass
internal and moral. The coral
is beautiful to behold, but
truth told, plays treacherous
against the hull. Sailors
full of hope and wonder
standing under the fullness
of lunar luminance.
And we dance.
each step a new turn,
a chance to learn our limitations;
our destinations seem so far.
A journey of a thousand miles
starts with a single step.
Make the trip; take the step.
