This certainly grabs one who sailed before and the words capture it well.

I love the symbolism you've incorporated into this poem, Jim , especially the last line. I have spray in my face and my lips are chapped. I also like the title fot its subtle ambiguity. Good stuff!

That last stanza is magic with its "finger of light" and "pulling behind him that yellow slicker hue" - and, of course, the last two lines evoke several meanings. Nice job.

This is a fine spiritual poem Jim with relevance for all us weary sailors.

...jim, i like the stylistics on top of the lilting alliteration...and like chris says such a sailor's need[to be guided by some North Star]...tip o' the tam.
