Journey

She boxes the compass
murmuring the familiar words
eyeing its weathered sterling
as it lays nested in weathered hands
telling story after story

Soon the waters will mock her
in their increasingly erratic gestures
but
as always
she will rally
and rest again, grinning
as sunlight settles on sterling
