Ships Comments

Rating: 4.8
When you fall asleep, dream of ships;
they always return…
So does my soul return on the morn
having navigated the "northern sea route".

There is hope for returning back of dream ships. If not, still there is no need to worry. There is promise to wait with patience for ships. This last stanza conveys message of promise and patience of waiting. Yes Carl, you have nicely witnessed Ivan's nautical imagery in this poem.

A lovely poem. I enjoyed the reference to the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the Pacific, which is also the deepest ocean. Very enjoyable.

When you fall asleep always dream of ships. They return… If once they do not, don't worry, I will wait for you at the bottom of the ocean. To be the nymph's servant and carry her lantern where the worlds of darkness touch… - - - - - - - -Love is a beautiful dream which gives hope and strength.Even when one is hopeless, lover's reassurance is like the light to overcome the darkness.Congratulations for Poem of the Day.

Part 2 Reference to Mariana Trench adds to iJts beauty, for Mariana does not just signify depth and profoundness. It signifies peace, calmness and orderliness. Because it is part of Pacific Ocean. Of course, due to its depth underwater, it connotes darkness as well. Great poem. (Continued)

I've read all four of your poems. Moving work. I like that you've developed a specific vocabularly that rolls through the work. I can feel you working through an emotional idea. I also like how your poems all remind me of villanelles. But aren't. It seems both apt and important. Breaking convention while somehow still paying tribute to it. I also can't escape the feeling that these are messages from a dying man to his surviving lover and/or dear ones.

Congratulations on your poem of the day. In my view, you should have made the last stanza the first, working on the fantasy theme.
