Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Contest entry. How will you tie the knots in your rigging?
Circumstances navigate the vessels
through uncharted waters
affected by both the ebb and flow
of storm swept tides
pushed and shoved by moons of discontent
and the ability of choice-woven riggings
to accommodate or deny capricious winds
which assail.
Taking the helm,
raising sextant
to gauge the serious aspects,
setting course
for future ports of call,
knowing when to advance or knot,
with tact, we tack our way
and thus guided by stars:
we set forth upon the
'Dante Alighieri'
riding the winds of chance
towards our destiny.
