Wish me luck, admiral

Wish Me Luck
           Leonard Cohen from Book of Longing       

a fresh spiderweb
like a spinnaker
across the open window
and here he is
the little master
sailing by
on a thread of milk
wish me luck
I haven’t finished anything
in a long time

Haven't finished anything and worse - haven't begun anything - in a long time. Not sure what I need is luck; but who needs luck when there is longing?

Or so I tell myself. Glad to have Leonard by my bedside for now. The sketches are also lovely.

You shouldn't be beginning anything before you finish something

Who needs luck when there is longing? Who needs to start or finish anything either, as long as there is longing.
