Divining the skies is a way to forget that we are
isolated on this small and restless planet; that we were thrown out into a
sea of stars without a lighthouse or a compass to guide our way back home.
Therefore, we are destined to wander as seafarers across the
roiling waters that cover this earth with our necks
always craning up towards the heavens. Crying, “Is there anyone out there?
Can anyone hear me?” until our mouths have grown dry from
tirelessly asking, with no guarantee of an
interstellar reply from across the universe,
overhead in the clouds, or far-reaching from a location beyond the
nebulous future that unravels before us.
About the Creator
"Seafaring" was inspired by Enya's "Caribbean Blue," and "The Seafarer" followed suit, but was also influenced by Sarah Kay's poetry. My essay on Game of Thrones won 3rd place here in the Vocal GOT contest! :)
