Sometimes I sit
with my back pressed
against a wall of sky,
until the winds shift
and the clouds pass by.

I just hope the man in the rigging remembers where he is and doesn’t lean back too far . . . !
I like sailing-ships, but I’d never want to be up there.
Have a great day,
You won’t catch me there, either!
Love the poem – makes me want to look up! LOL
