Sailing is a brilliant pastime.
There’s much space around the boat.
And forgotten is the last time
you carried home a heavy tote.
You can relax, forget all sorrows
because you can’t do anything
about the yesterdays and morrows
that regularly used to cling.
The here and now demands your brains
and concentration on the water,
and when it thunders, storms or rains
the leisure spans will become shorter.
So better be prepared for action.
The weather is enough distraction.
