Three ships

As I walked near the sea one day
out of a summer sky 
came three sailing ships
with billowed sails
so silently on high they floated in the
quietness of that June afternoon
not a sound did they make
as onto a gentle bed of ocean
they did alight
greeting the white caps
that danced in their presence as a
trembling blue sea wrapped its arms 
around their heaving hulls that sailed off
into a western sky - listing gently, they sighed
on a watery voyage towards a unknown horizon
and cupping my hands
to my brow I watched as they became
specks in the distance 
engulfed by a fiery sunset
of a disappearing day..

    Crystal clear imagery on a beautiful day, by the always magnificent and breathtaking sea. Your poetry excels. This was so delightful to read. Love, Shar

    A sight like this takes the mind to a million different lands....wondering and exploring the imagination...where are those ships heading, and what would it be like to be on one? Lovely poem, Valerie...the serenity and the scene it portrays. ~ Love, Carrie
