Voyage

Mist, like a veil
Sprays over the bow
As the ship surges forward
Into the sea it ploughs

The Sailors seek guidance
In the darkness of the night
As the Moon hangs in the sky
A great ball of light

Guiding their ship
Past any danger that lurks
On this important voyage
Through Nature’s network

The crests of the waves
Sparkle and shimmer
Against the canvas of the ocean
That barely raises a glimmer

Onward they travel
Toward their destination
Full of confidence
With great anticipation!

Eye Of The Storm

The ship approaches
The eye of the storm
Captain spins the wheel
Sharply to port

The wind is howling
Ripping over the ship
As the Captain and crew
Try to give the storm the slip

Waves are getting higher
The sea salt so strong
As the ship continues to
Disappear into the throng

Belted and buffeted
The ship sails on
Prizing itself
From the battle, just won

The waters are calm now
Minds are at rest
As the ship won the battle
Of Mother Nature’s fine test!
