The Work of It

The Work of It

It does not happen at once, the journey.
It takes a boat and a boat takes building,
hard work, painstaking and unforgiving.
There is pain in it,
and beauty too
as you go from raw wood
to finished craft,
ready to face the sea
and capture the wind.

About this poem

The things we want most in life – love, relationships, faith – don’t just happen. We have to prepare ourselves first. And once prepared…. they come.

We forget that sometimes.
