The Storm is Out


A poem dedicated to Guido and his ship captains


by natalie


The storm is out


Weathering gales and waves


Pounce on land


And beat on


the port


The young man


lifts his sea light


tries to gather in


exhasted seamen


on the wake


Men tug; they wrestle


with their ropes;


hoping


beyond hope that


No loads are lost


No ships get tossed


beyond the gale


A solitary captain


His mooring lost


Is thrust about


Beyond the bridge


and beyond the bay;away


he drifts;


ashore


the young man


flashes his sea light;


he wishes


the captain could


secure his ropes


and tighten


his sails


once again


After Thoughts:


Please visit Pharmolo (Guido) at his journal sites.


He has two:
