Land from Water

looking at the shore
from out upon the lake
my imagination soared in a day-dream about great
who first went upon the water
sailed away from safe homes…
no not the haunty ones
but those truly
ancient ones…
people without names
no history books for them
the ones who travelled forth
upon the first of human boats
and wonder I at their courage
or maybe the necessity
that lead them thus
to leave
comfortable land.
