Her Soul, the Sea - The Ship

The Ship (Her Soul, the Sea)

Foreshadowing the dusk, appeared immense,
magnanimous the skylines sent the ship,
its blackened sight embossed the thought and sense
of sailors that imagined its long trip.

The ship's black smoke ascended to the skies
from supercilious tall funnels, smog
bestowed its sacrificial offing size
to sovereign Gods that lived inside the fog.

In front of us, the ship's displacement thrilled
approaching thus magnificent the moors;
Her Soul, the Sea, and eulogy that killed,
relentlessly enticed, through dark allures.

The night descended when the ship's steel gaze
examined curious and measured me,
proposing wedlock and a fate of blaze,
my competence, demanding, in the sea.

Across the Straits, young Lady Sadness kissed
with ripping cold my twenty years and eyes,
resembling Her Soul, the Sea, amidst
the Northern winds that howled and life's demise.

    Oh my goodness Giorgio.. This has to be the best poem I have read in years!!! I love itwith everything I am. I am wowed that I actually won your contest. There are so many very much more talented writers here. Just very happy about that win.I've been working my regualr job and freelance writing on the side for a long time and sometimes I don't know which end is up. Hoping after a review of my work it will lead to a more decent agent. Not alot of time here. Going to send you soupmail tomorrow. :)

    Great poem. powerful diction and images. It created a feeling similar to the one I had while reading "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner"
