brines' sister

Back in the distance stood her form
she waved saluting - and I knew,
our life had stopped , the distance grew,
- when I embarked, her glance was warm.

The Adriatic was that night
calm - covered by a cotton mist,
- she shroud became, of our last feast
that lingered in the souls first light.

And ghostly was the old ship's log
- fair ocean sister - end betimes
she covered us with sounds of chimes
that rang harmonic from the fog.

Like Sirens' voices their sound welled
forthright - unearthly was their verse
so blithe and kind in minds rehearse
thus spoken words beloved and held.

Brines' sister, distance and faint glow
- from depths my solitude enacts,
while shooting stars on earthward tracks
night-race to quench by ocean's draw.

The boldness of the ship declines
the nautilus' endangered fare;
it's wrongful to recall her stare,
our bicycling and coastwise pines.

Brines' sister song conducts in air
- our magistral attended line,
how beautiful the dewdrops shine
- aloneness floats on seaward fare.

    I can definitely feel the deep sadness within this poem, and the longing for a lost love. Amazing work, Giorgio! Congratulations on your well deserved win!...This reminds me of my poem, "Her Heart Is The Sea". It was written for Poetess Darkly's recent contest, but unfortunately it did not place...Thank you so much for the great comments. And, thanks for being a good friend. :)

    There is always the feeling of longing, of deep blue sadness while looking at the seascape under a starry night. Another beautifully written poem from your amazing pen.
