Midnight Pearl

When ships set sail upon the sea
Exploring ancient world
They'd move by how the stars align
And use the midnight pearl

By day they'd use a compass to
Determine East and West
At night they brought the sextant out
To chart the course that's best

The Captain stood behind the wheel
Enjoying peaceful waves
Confident the moon and stars
Would guide him on his way

But sometimes when the storms would rage
And ocean waves would roll
The Captain and the crew would pray
That Neptune takes no toll

Then all at once the seas subside
And clouds would break and wane
The midnight pearl would then shine through
To show the way again

Randy (Rockman) Pritts

    Glad you enjoyed my poem, Rockman. I don't have any writing skills- it's all a gift from the Holy Spirit. I never know from line to line what I will write. I enjoyed this poem of yours - good luck with Russel's contest. Cheer, Maureen
