Ten-tipped finger prints
rivers of plenty
with finger nail paddle
I row through gently

A challenge to plot possible paths
a curve in the wind
waves in my mast

wooden sextant tinder
measures the webbing between your fingers


I raise your fist for my flag
and sail with faith
knowing the map is the palm of your hand
Not sure if I like the title. Good thing though, on my adventure through the crack of their hands I didn't run into any palm pirates, thank Poseidon.

Everything about this is stirringly odd, and I love odd things. But one exception is the very last line, in honesty I just don't feel it fits. But that's just an opinion.
