A Late Winter’s Rumination

I may not sail the southern sea
after all
nor tread round ancient Troy
as once I dreamed
diminishing opportunity
fading energy
comes a winter’s realization
my time for large adventures likely passing
now to wander closer realms
in and out
and begin my preparations
to ride the last snow-melt
down past lake and stream
through rapid and splash
and percolated drip
into underground rivers
flowing quietly
to sea
