Day 24 of 30 Random Wikipedia Articles

Day 24 is a prompt from impromptuThe poem consists of 10 lines total, in a 3-3-3-1 stanza distribution words taken from ten random wikipedia articles. Each line is 9 syllables long. No meter is required. I've included the words and the links to the articles.

For Keith Price
There is a house it is a cabin
we use it as a means to migrate
at intervals, the chain becomes whole.

There is a seabed, we reserve it
an ocean to float into the blue,
a search and swim under water-light.

This is a place we have not yet dreamed
it is history not born, not built
a city where language is borrowed.

We search for tracks to make our way home.
