Silver Ships

Written May 31, 2013


The sun does rise
Over silver ships sailing in the sky
Rain on down on our parade
In a concrete jungle
The kids come out to play
Masked by this dreadful masquerade

A cosmic dance where stars collide
The kids and parents run to hide
Shelter from the enemy above
Who light up the sky with lightning bugs

The land is dark and the sky is black
Mothers pray the birds will not come back
Be it by barren land or vicious sea
Lord just hear our plea

The sun does rise
Over silver ships sailing in the sky
Rain on down on our parade
In a concrete jungle
The kids come out to play
Masked by this dreadful masquerade

    This is really cool. Is it metaphorical for nature or for something sci fi?? For me, it could go both ways. I really enjoyed this one.

    Most of my poems take their form while I am in the process of writing them. With this one I had just read an article on the Battle of Britain. So I guess that was on my mind. I am very excited to see someone leave a sincere comment! I really liked your poem Autumn's Breath.
