A new song

A song I didn’t recognize came on the speaker
a melody that circled me
twirling me
with notes of cinnamon in her hair
& I noticed the sun going around with me

For too long I had spun widdershins
through life bouncing over rough waters
without rhythm
like a young sailor navigating in the dark

But I’m an old sailor now
& this new tune steers me
with measured beats
that make the way lighter
