You can read about the challenge here. I am going to write a sonnet about writing for this challenge.

The music is "Wond'ring Aloud" by Jethro Tull from their album "Aqualung"

Wanderer Wondering In The Word Cloud


I Am In Uncharted Water

The Stars And Compass Are My Tools

On This Unknown Sea So Salty

Under Night Clouds I Feel A Fool


A Canvas Of Clouds In The Night

Craft Slicing To The Horizon

Sun Rise Glow. A Glorious Sight

Ahead Compass Marks My Way Home


Unknown Star Signs Are Heralding

Wild And Free, The Time Is Passing

Moving Toward A Reckoning

This Voyage I'll Soon Be Leaving


Though I Sail In Isolation

I Have Many Destinations

    Oh I so love the last two lines. For alone we came here and alone we sail this vast ocean of life. Such a lovely slice of life in words.

    Nicely done!

  • I love this… it feels so optimistic and is exactly what I need to read right now. I seemed to have been unsubscribed from you (I did wonder why you were not publishing for a while!) but it’s now fixed πŸ™πŸŒŸ
