voile de la mer

When restless seas rise then fall
When darkened clouds form and ferment
When whistling winds sing then howl
When winter waves toss and turn
Steel yourself!
Recall where you are
Bring to bear where you are going
With all who fare with you
In the quiet and peace to come
Deep blue the sky emerging
Gentle the breeze to grace one's face
As destiny gives rise to praise

  1. This is a delightful one to read aloud, emmett.

    P.S. I dig the blog's makeover.

I cannot speak for my poetry, it must speak for itself.
