Hoist the colours, set sail

A tanka (5-7-5-7-7) for Sammi Cox’s Weekend writing prompt: prompt word being Wool-gathering and total number of words being 36 words.

Wheel under your hands

Set your sail; hard to starboard

Wool gathering mind,

Carve my black heart with your knife

Exuding warm liquid gold

(the right gates will open
swim among the clouds
above the waters.)
