Racing Wedge by jyruff

Time running out
for racers rounding the last bouy
as the wind wips up
and surf kicks up

from an approaching storm
in the now fading light

boats take frantic flight
not wanting to sail into the mad night.

into the bottomless pit
of waking dragons
demons of lore
stir with fear

upon mens soles
deep within the minds eye
are tales of sailors who dread the night
who so franticly sail into the light

24″ × 30″ Fine Art Seascape oil and acrylic painting – original work hand painted by Hawaii Seascape artist Joseph Ruff
