Anaemic Lamps - Poem by Robert Dummett

Midnight. Shadows slip over the horizon
While boats sleep like babes silently as a mime.
Green water wears a charcoal gown
Rubbing ribs gently muttering
In the shallows of sea-shaven stone,
To buoys flashing anaemic lamps.

    Beautiful imagery Robert. A multitude of colours subtly give hues to warmth and serenity and power to silence. Utterly poignant and profound! (Report)Reply
