They Will Fade If I Further

They will fade
if I further.

Wind breathes
to bulge sails.

I stand
on the stern,

wave to their
figures on the jetty.

My mother waves back.
My father motions with his hand

to steer me, points to a rising
crest that wraps and lifts the hull.

I could stay here,
at this distance.

Yes. I think I will.
