Blessing the Boats by Lucille Clifton


Awa Province, Kominato, Uchiura by Ando Hiroshige

(at St. Mary's)

may the tide

that is entering even now

the lip of our understanding

carry you out

beyond the face of fear

may you kiss

the wind then turn from it

certain that it will

love your back may you

open your eyes to water

water waving forever

and may you in your innocence

sail through this to that
