Quietly

Quietly the red and gray ship slips out the river's mouth. Guided by the pilot's skilled
hand between the buoys into the open sea.  The red paint a warm contrast to the soft blues and grays that surround land, river, sky and sea...

one lone seagull leads a flock of twenty others... higher, faster, soaring
A cargo ship noisly speeds between the buoys. The waters that it parted a stark silver-gray to its black hull. It is carrying only about a half of a load. Where will it go out on the ocean? What port does it seek with a ship half-full of earthly goods?
heavenly portal now many aged are seeking.. will their cargo go
A shrimp boat that looks like a mass of nets slowly glides through the buoys. Will it catch its fill of those delicious crustaceans? Will my net be filled when I come ashore?

    Clever use of a form I am not familiar with. We invented a form in NYC - the 9 1 1 form. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
