Jim’s Voyage

Bi Janus

A sea can have mountains,

or a river,

and climbing

is a sidelong journey

against gravity and tide.

Luffing sails before the wind,

hesitate and concentrate,

as a man might rest

leaning on his walking stick

face turned up to a crest,

before the wind takes you

at angles to the goal.

Switching back on the chop,

tacking to shore from shore,

an improbable journey made

possible over a certain length

but whiling an uncertain time.
