An Escort

donot  pluck those smiling flowers 
and  place them
upon this mortal self when 
darkness engulfs me.
Put me back in Her bosom
with a reminder that LORD 
be with me in my voyage to 
the other world.

Blood Seeks Depths Within

blood seeks depths within

carries air on its voyage

round and round it flows

'Love - like a flower'

and appear
out of the blue,
mystery to some
but others embrace it
happiness not guaranteed
instead of enjoying the voyage,
we focus more on the conclusion
before it has a chance to bloom, it dies…

Short Voyage poem by Sabina Nicole| Details |

March on

Simplicity rides,
Reflections whisper welcomes,
New terrains to voyage through,
Melted meadows chant
To the beat of hasty streams,
Beams of light dazzle the way.

Short Voyage poem by Fabian Olesen| Details |

The Philosopher´s Madness

When one imagines
And one is in sadness
The time for madness
Will come like snow
Slowly growing larger
And one tends to depart
Into a voyage of the mind
To subseed into sorrow
And wonder if he´s life
Is madness, or madness
His life.

Short Voyage poem by bishnu bhusal| Details |


Eyes shut
my mind surges through the ocean
vast,deep and magnanimous.
Unknown horizon devours us;
morbid desperation fades away
I breathe in eternal numbness
and abandon my roots.
Crimson hue veils me
Just us.
a ceaseless voyage begins.

Short Voyage poem by Luis Martinez-Rivera| Details |

The Life of a Land Lover

The journey of perilous seas-
a vessel so grand-
plunging into the darkest abyss-
eagerly searching as the house upon a rock-

Steering true through mutinies,
teetering on the brink of tipping!

Rallying, never to waver again!

Yet another voyage just dawning-forevermore!

Short Voyage poem by choning dorji| Details |


too much when life sails on her voyage
in beauty and grace of the flow of life
i fear if life is a beautiful drear
we lived so long in false concepts

my heart is a weak soul
and so are men in built up muscles
there is no greater humor in men 
than to hear him boast his strength.

Short Voyage poem by Michael Mccreadie| Details |


not of man,
but bear and salt,
legend and deep voyage,
ancestral water,
frost and voice.

Hail Caledonia!

and you,
in Scotia style
reveal words
in smoke and wood,
that breathed 
the same air as me.

for the return glance
its prayer
of time 
without consequence.

Short Voyage poem by Mirela Simic| Details |

a trip, a trap

sitting in sounds
sitting where nobody cares
and my thoughts voyage all alone again.

it's the old world
who came back to me,
slided your side while you were leaving.

but I love you for living away,
for now I know who you are.
as long as you try to come back,
as long as you never left me.

Short Voyage poem by jigyasa makkar| Details |


Standing on the crossroads
When a choice you make
The roads that go far
The voyage is at stake.
You could just stroll
You could procrastinate
Until you lose track
Lose faith in 'fate'
Walk a lane on whim
Cede to 'the unchaste'
Steer the ship yourself
Better you than Him to curate

Short Voyage poem by Mark Hansen| Details |

Successful Writer

Beginning voyage.
Cruel taunts of repeating meditate,
"Do I really have it?"
Finding out?
Step forth in the knowing.
Just a few dollars away,
Writing supplies at any Wal-Mart.
It only a pipe dream coming to a now end.
Most definitely in the poetry journey-

Short Voyage poem by Ph.d Volo Von Wolfenstein| Details |

Seaside Sorrow

The waves that break the shore
know no more than the sea, as
earth is taken with rocks broken
free, lost in the violent currents 
and sinkholes of time. 
      Here, life is taken
and brought to it's darkest hour
drowning, sand and water choke
surrounding sailors on the sea-bound

Short Voyage poem by Brian Strand| Details |

Ahoy there

you take my hand
and voyage with me
upon this ship
you come aboard
and sail a sea
of uncharted waters,
you explore new sounds,
discover a place
unknown,with unique
you close your eyes,
let the canvas unfold,
and imagination pen..

Short Voyage poem by Andrew Crisci| Details |


Too awful was the fate of the beautiful and elegant Titanic,
it's last voyage to New York City proved to be very tragic...
it suddenly crashed into a gigantic iceberg and rapidly sank.
Many passengers waited for rescue on the ship's main deck;
only human courage can truly attest to the tale of the Titanic.

Short Voyage poem by L'nass Shango| Details |

The Process

On its conveyor belt
Moves me
Past the cherished things of life
That waits
Other spectators on this path
To yawn
And crumple with their desire
And then
To come behind my voyage
By what we thought we would
Until age halts us, and the belt
For death to board and select
Shrinking from the gate.

Short Voyage poem by Nigel Fox| Details |

The Seas off Puerto de la Cruz

Blue power
Atlantic oceans power

Impetus a million tons of water
Vast spray a haze of salty mist in the air
Three hundred yards of sea 

Iridescent rainbow in the bright sunlight
Withering pounding and crushing
Waves a thousand mile voyage

Relentless night and day
Past millenniums 
Millenniums to come

Short Voyage poem by Scribe ML| Details |


Is it coincidental the airline is 'United?'
Serving cryogenic terrorism, keeping the world divided
Plutonium's bon voyage, flies free in the fuselage
Media proves the mirage, but not the garage
The beast' bellies must be growling,
genocide spoon-fed by the thousands...

Over 200 people onboard, not a single text transmitted?

Short Voyage poem by George Maris| Details |

Life's struggle and limits

One day our ship will port in a place of peace and wonder.
Abaft facing the wind and sails at rest.
Limp from its journey, tired and sunder. The bolt rope holding it together.
pushing stead course toward its mark breaking every crest.
awaiting to reach its voyage end, brails to pull along the way.
The shore that limits the journey stay.

Short Voyage poem by Nigel Fox| Details |

The Seas off Puerto de la Cruz

blue power
an oceans power
impetus a million tons of water
vast spray a haze of salty mist in the air
iridescent there rainbows in the bright sunlight
three hundred yards distant felt inertia of the sea
withering a pounding and a crushing
waves a thousand mile voyage
relentless night and day
past millenniums 
to come

Short Voyage poem by Siti Aishah Abu Bakar| Details |

I captained the ship i called my own ~Ark of Storm~

Ark of storm
A ship i called my own
A pride anew was born
I sail to a place i call home

I alone captained the ship
Through every destination and voyage
Make way for this mighty ark
Make way for a Royale anchorage

This ark of a thousand man
Within our territory we defend
With a sword in our hands
We fight till the very end...

Short Voyage poem by Michael Degenhardt| Details |

Sands of Time

The ship
A distant vessel
From the shore
Carries her heart

She stands
Forever watching
As it sails off
With her love

She will wait
Feet deeper in the sand
As epochs of time
Don’t control her

She loves him
As he too loves her
But his destiny 
Must be met

This voyage
Is his destiny
She awaits his return
Her destiny

Short Voyage poem by George Aul| Details |

Fair Maiden

A maiden all on her own,
a journey to last a lifetime;
to be the first - a place in history...
to be the last - history certain.
No one expected its fate,
no one imagined their plight;
the cold depths hides the tragedy,
the stories... never hidden.
One hundred years not forgotten,
a maiden on a voyage...
always remains a maiden.

Short Voyage poem by richard karr| Details |

How Far

How far, how far could we go 
In just one dream, do you know?
Circle a star, can we sail that far?
Take in Jupiter and pass by Mars 
Imagine that voyage just you and me
Going even further than far can be
With no end, past the end of sight
Even beyond the darkness of night 
A voyage to the other side of extreme
That’s how far we can go in our dream

Short Voyage poem by ifedayo oshin| Details |

All I see still is love

The water stirred
Residues turn unsettled
Colored and blurred
Crystal clear after calm
An all I see still is
An order of love
Both of our hearts
Safe for momentary chase of the winds
That now takes its toll
When ships of this magnitude
Together on the same sea
Must voyage
Partners in progress they may be
But the sea knows no sentiments

Short Voyage poem by Christy Hardy| Details |

Upon The Sea

Upon the sea, she floats in peace,
many a voyage, has set her free.
Dues now paid, no one owns her soul,
her map is inked, in silver, and gold.
Rest dear lady, you have earned this day,
all your sins, cast silently away.
A one way ticket, your truth has bought,
allowing you slumber, that many have sought.
Upon the sea, she floats in peace.

Short Voyage poem by Steve Voorhees| Details |

LOVE FISH.....a word morph

Seaward seeking...on a voyage finding LOVE
 Empty hands and heart left me with none to LOSE
But somewhere southbound, the compass left me LOST
 No bearing back or finding that....which I wanted MOST
Rocking through vengeful waves, blinded by the MIST
 A Map of loves failed pursuit... balled up in my FIST
Pulled in wet dripping nets,  with not one FISH

Short Voyage poem by Michael J. Falotico| Details |

A Voyage Into You

A voyage of you that starts with a kiss...
A ride taken slow without a spot missed...
Silky curves that have a life of its own...
Rivers of fruit that leads to your home...
Strawberry rainbows that encircle your body...
We drift into bliss as you surrender to me...
Hands that learn to speak on this tasty ride...
Where we lay on a stage where passion can't hide...

Short Voyage poem by Andrea Dietrich| Details |

His Wait

I move along my path in cosmic silence, a boulder to those shiny stones, the stars I keep in sight. The many times I curve around the radiating fountain of my force seems everlasting. The space I travel through is vast, and yet. . . . to the eye of my Creator, this voyage I make is but a jaunt. His wait for me to cease will have been a pittance of a pause.

Short Voyage poem by John Weber| Details |

A curiosity

within this shell
I voyage alone
to finally experience
thought with clarity.

Such soliloquies
fill me with vigor
secure in knowing
I belong apart.

Blessed silence
radiates like a promise
assuring somber peace
outside all spheres

in lone orbit
beholden to nil
without agendas
tipping my pitch.

Your bombardment
of murky disdain
shall hinder me

dance macabre

Dance Macabre 
Soon we all will all look 
30 when we die,
which will please undertakers? 
Death will be called a voyage, 
on an everlasting cruise ship
and the purser will send 
festive cards 
from romantic ports. 
No, grand dad is not dead he is resting
and he is wearing makeup because he is going on 
a passenger ship to be dancing partner
for old ladies.

Short Voyage poem by Luann Pfost| Details |

Spaced Dutchman

Vacuum of space surrounds his hold
as he leaves the fair Cappellan
Darkness without and bitter cold
he seeks the far Magellan
How far he travels in search of gold
wrinkles line his star tanned face
Shouting I AM the adventurer bold
no echos resound in space
Silence answers he is  alone
darkness whispers its tragedy
the tanned faced turns to bone
an endless voyage on an endless sea.

Short Voyage poem by Magnus Nwagu Amudi Esq| Details |

Wooing a Queen

Thy complexion like an orange
And thou love cabbage
I have trapped and put you in bondage
A love without dosage

I love thy courage
Even in the face of danger
I have lost my rage
Thy beauty not mirage

I shall sail you in a voyage
To discover, long forgotten age
I shall speak your language
With a lot of energy
Then I shall be thy manager
If you walk with me in marriage

Short Voyage poem by Michael Degenhardt| Details |

Our Own Way

The iron gate, it swung fast shut
Reminding me of life, complete
We must pass through on our way
Relying then, on our own feet

Walking forward into day
Each day anew, with hopes to free
Releasing bonds we so abuse
As eyes open, so wide to see 

Follow pavement, so laid before
Or make our own, to place our feet
Just move ahead, one step each time
To voyage into destiny

Short Voyage poem by Tony Bush| Details |


Final scene 
last act 
end of day 
cue dimming lights 
improvised speeches 
scripted words 
in an unwritten play

Clean stage 
trodden boards 
one man show 
cue spotlight filters 
cut the prompts 
a lit cigarette 
with a tangerine glow 

Exit time 
off stage left 
empty halls 
cue silence and still 
fondest memories spill 
bon voyage, break a leg 
curtain falls...
