Flash Of The Wake


‘The wake of the Sea-Ship after she passes, flashing and  frolicsome under the sun’

– from ‘After the Sea-Ship’, Walt Whitman,1900

God, I love Whitman ,he has a line for  just about every life experience. Read him at  my wedding and my father’s funeral because I needed the reassurance of his insight  to sum up what I couldn’t quite get out of my own mouth…

I think ship wakes are beautiful -amazing symbols of where we have come from and where we are going, at the same time.
