Chancing Nocturnal

Chancing Nocturnal

I ride these waves
to cross your bow
untie your freight
unfurl your sails
raise your banner
a rushing revival
for the Great Unknown

nestling you away
backing the anchor
of crestfallen stars
with untamed pitch
at the tempest’s snare
we’ll swallow the odds
at home, in flow

we’ll chance nocturnal
wax by the moon
starboard we’ll rise
uncharted we’ll sail
winding the winds
to wake ascent

treasures abound
ceding our cues
relieving salty captains
of drunken laments
intoxicatingly alight
you are my destination
our destined regale
