The poem(s) are below...


on a slow boat to nowhere

amidst the thunder and the thuds
of boilers and blocks panting evermore
in a halcyon sea, the territorial gulls
shriek their high-pitched sadness as they soar.

and all throughout the gray outline
the groaning of the waves are heard,
as steel slices through the blackish brine
and lonely hearts are stirred.

    Congratulation on your poem featured today - I liek the way you probed the rose. This one now reminds of a sailor's dream for his home coming. Beautiful imageries. I like it. Love and peace
