Untethered from time and space

Looking east from Saco, ME:  7/28/16

This boat seemingly untethered from time and space
evokes in me the memory of another boat
I sailed upon long ago
bound for Vietnam

How transfixed I was on midnight watch
by our phosphorescent wake
splitting the mirrored sea:

Our boat only a speck
in the ocean of eternity
