on my tall ship at sea


Крузенштерн (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

listen to the sounds of my tall ship
sailing under the pale moonlight
with only the light of the far stars
in the night sky to steer her right

hear the whispering sigh of the wind
after a hurricane gale has past us over
sparing our safe harbor island home
but leaving countless palm trees strewn allover

feel the unending rhythm of white capped waves
beating against our ship’s wooden hull
as a radiant sun shines overhead without feeling
lighting up the sky overhead for a solitary sea gull

enjoy the pair of dolphins beside us flying through the air
leaping together joyfully in the waves just out of reach
as a flock of sea gulls cry out and search for food on the far horizon
and a single trail of footprints wander aimlessly down a sandy beach

    Still working on this one. I may have gotten caught up on a reef.
