Memories of the Sea

Glassy waters of azure
Transparent winds nudging gentle ripples
On the salty ocean surface

Tiny reflections caress birds
That stir ever so slightly
On the welcoming liquid
Yet barely noticeable
In the vastness of the sea

Trails of white roads
Climb to the beyond
Leading away from the sun’s glowing light
Puffs so straight as if drawn by man

A massive boat sits calmly
As birds stand perched on fish stakes
One bird to each wooden pole
Obeying the rules of space

Dulled reds and blues
Accented by white railings all about
A ghost ship
The essence of men
No longer breathing in
The now silent smokestack

All is at the edge
The finality of what once was
Gone forever
Mere memories remain
Susan Werby


For those who love big Toy Boats, this is for you!
