Second Hand Tales

Updated on July 30, 2013

Searching the waves for a lost ship


Second Hand Tales

Second Hand Tales

The vessel tossed and turned,

O’r the fields of melting blue,

Into torrents of foam and chaos

Slowly devouring time and existence

Rolling to the vibrations of energy,

Living and breathing through the brine,

The ship grasps onto the fight.

Picturing a brightly coloured outcome

Nigh two days pass as the storm rages,

It hollows and consumes;

The souls upon the craft,

They cry and howl to the stars and moon.

Soon tides subside,

Rain turns to rays of warmth,

Echoes of the wind can be heard,

But not felt in the tranquility.

One soul is left aboard

To tell a fantastical tale,

Of a voyage and undertaking

Wit’ godly proportions to be told

Sadly, the tales are in vein.

It is impossible to grasp language

With the grace and determination of nature,

The navigator is merely there for the ride.
