On wooden blocks, upside down
you might not even notice
the sailboat,

miles from the water,
years from whitecaps

The boat remembers,
every wave, every gust of wind
each blue sky afternoon

As a dog recalls the way home,
a man, his first car
a grandmother her first kiss.

Obstacles, irrelevant.
Memories defy time and distance.
