Yearn for the vast and endless sea

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Tethered Tide

Lighthouse in this land-locked state
Lighthouse in this sagebrush sea
Lighthouse in this smoky bar
Lighthouse glowing out for me
 .
Break in the storm, just feet away
Break in the storm, solid by my side
Break in the storm, and eddy – calm
Break in the storm, he keeps me tied
 .
Tethered to my own majestic ship
Tethered to the gusts and gales
Tethered to the ocean depth
Tethered by twisted ropes and nails
 .
He knows not, the demons he anchors
He knows not, he anchors the tide
He knows not, he is the lighthouse
He knows not, he is the steadfast guide
