lost at sea - new tanka

wind carries the cries
of lost souls departed hence.
Claimed in the white foam
of a turbulent spring tide....
St Nicholas* comforts them


* St Nicholas patron saint of sailors

This one has a deep, and sad feeling, of the difficult life, and loss of the men who went to sea. Such a unique tanka ! Congratulations Seren!
