now is a ship

which captain am
sails out of sleep

steering for dream

“ee cummings is one of my most loved poets, and this poem, almost a haiku, suggests much about that other identity we carry in us and which life invites us to discover. Conventionally it would be said that we need to sail out of sleep to find “reality”, not dreams, and conventionally “I” should be the captain of “my” ship – but not for ee – seeing, as always, way beyond the seeming horizon.”  Noah Pikes from Switzerland
