I sensed the dance of clouds and windy drawl,
fast moving marionettes of moonlight,
conceived they passed the crannies of the soul,
and intersected solitude forthright.

The dusk descended when 'Archangel' crossed
the sight of island men, remote like wraith
and huge the blackened ship's displacement bossed
the nautilus stunned stares and childhood's faith.

Monotonous the bagpipes led to trance,
- autonomous the ship's insistent horn,
invited us to some unworldly dance
the ship regaled; that stung our souls like thorn.

We danced inside the rain while ghost bag pipes
were interlaced by sea's baptismal notes,
- betrothal waved the blue and white flag stripes,
- like coffins cradled round the wooden boats.

Embarked were we, according to their song,
thence sailed infinity upon the brines,
tho' Harpies from the ghostly mists, along,
the Hades' treated us, communion wines.

    this is a great poem of "atmosphere." Loved that ending line Our solitude became and fog's daughters. Wow. Congrats on the win.

    I confess that I don't understand the "content" of your poem, but the truth is that I don't care that I can't read it as I read other poems. The reason for this is your fabulous use of language, verging on verbal collage. Each line all but reads by itself. I congratulate you on your our win... Jack

    This is a profound lyric poetry, where concrete elements are intimately mixed with soul ghosts and spiritual atmosphere comin from the Archangel visit
