Around the corner
from Mr. Smith’s
the trail to
the old lighthouse
where the keeper
walked ten thousand
times or more
to town for
bread eggs milk
and a bottle
of keep warm
the beacon shines
without him tonight
gps and autopilot
guide our way
still we’re bedazzled
and welcomed home
through foggy mist
over ageless waves.
