Four More Years

Obama takes an oath to guide us for four more years. As someone who voted for him, I am glad he is at the head of this Ship of State. Rough waters lie ahead!! One can’t imagine why anyone would want to be navigator for such seas. We all know this is not heaven or even purgatory. Those two words inply boundaries and weather conditions. Lightening and thunder follow us here with shootings, disease and all the rest. While the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride across the hard earth we dare not land the vessel and hope for a steady hand at the helm. We are possibly bound to make this journey through the years left on this earth, changing course where the harsh conditions allow us. Meanwhile we seek the glory of sunrises, the symphony of waters, the tilt of our lives as to a sailor’s hornpipe. We are finding the
journey hard,but it is the only journey we can make. The smile of a captain is always reassuring.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
