Don Candido is particularly wise in the saying he used. Giacinto is a sailor, and to tell him to sail the water he's in is of course how he will understand to look at the wind-flag and choose a new heading.

Yes...

I went looking for a saying to go with the prompt and found that one; it was such a perfect match that it shaped much of the poem.

In order to communicate, match someone's preferred metaphor. Giacinto's life metaphor is presumably "life is a sailing ship." Fiorenza's is probably "life is a garden."

My husband and I hit upon that early in our relationship...we called it "finding his channel". (Although he's not particularly into TV or anything. He's actually a car geek.)

It's interesting to hear about people with experiences like that.
