Ship of Dreams
A ship in a dream pointing
her shapely shadows from the shadowed dawn.
The image tumbling on a castoff rose-swept bay
and sweeping waves.
I watched in vain this drowsy ship from an older day.
Sails billowed in the swift winds sway.
Amidst the painted mid sea-blue waves caressed
the shore-sea green.
Taking in awe and wonder my breath indrawn the salty sea air.
I watched through timeless dream shades as alas
she sank into the moonlight.
The sea was only sea all was left the
dream with me.
