On The Good Ship - Poem by Martina Moriarty

She never met the Captain
yet! ...
the ocean knew his name?
Rugged hopes clenched together by the threads of rapture embraced by him!
Late night secret sailings to the cave-of-bonfire-hearts-
reading charts...of his art? ...to show her his worthy way...

Danger was as close as a serpents shave?
Yet! ...
the ocean knew her name?
the safety of his presence turned her cryptic voyage worldly.
Smooth vibes fastened together-
by the strands of everlasting space.
Sentenced early mornings...now freed by the protection of his compelling vision

With her one last desire!
he cast his breath among the pulse of time
to salvage their new beginning.
Thus a new day was born..

    Again, you have used your gift of imagery to paint a suberb picture/poem. Perhaps its my own self proclaimed desire to master imagery in this way that makes me appreciate your talent the way I do. (Report) Reply
