Sailing the wind

on endless ocean wrapped with sky,

sailing the wind,

chasing the sun yearning to find

destiny, so onward we fly,

lithe fish below, birds in the sky

sailing the wind.

This poem is a rondelet in response to Jane Dougherty Poetry Challenge #37The challenge was to write a rondelet using the above painting and the prompt ‘journey’ as inspiration.
