Schooners/………By Sami Khalil

( A seafarer's poem , a mariner's longing )

...............................................................................................................................................

 

I must sail upon the sea’s face and tide

leaving lonely shores, delight in no pride

 

I must answer calls of my distant dreams

Of gleaming lands, mellow love streams

 

Where untamed passions elate in starlight

Briny deep monsters run away so affright

 

And serenaded dwellers in graceful dances

Relieving despair, the heat of prior chances

 

Whereupon rolling dunes, the raging sea waves

Crescent moons hide in lover’s secret enclaves

 

For tide and time await no man, ancient mariners

Must all dash in the tempests as roaming winners

 

Being fitful braves, flash upon a death’s eyes

In their  anguishes, abandoning many dirge cries

 

Old sailors, one lonely fate awaits in the unknown

Under sky’s bosom, ancient winds are constantly blown

 

Varnished decks, glistening in hued blue streaks

Sea-scape visions in one's drifting mind peaks

 

Some man-made marvels, midst shores-a- crowding

Fair maidens wait upon heroes, anxiously dashing

 

They beckon for delight when night sways, permits

Lavender kisses, heaped in manifold love admits

Sami Khalil,
"Schooners" brought to the forefront of my heart-mind all the many who have loved, fought, lived, chosen and bravely died and some not on the sea then sunk into it. What a poem this. It is good to be reminded of those gone before us. There's was a life too. We can take inspiration from others any time any place to fight the good fight and live the best we can. This was my take although this piece was lovely, warm, winsome and oh so romantic. Loved reading one of your early ones......Thanks and so many blessings to you.........kathy

amazing fantasy..........
i can see how Sailors would long for sea...........oceans/seas are so beautiful.............when surrounded by water on all sides.........no land is visible..........you realize nature's majesty..........that calmness can soothe your soul..............and when you are in a storm..........it brings to closer to Lord..............and when you survive............no moment can top that............
it make you appreciate life and your self much much more........
wish i could elope with a ship on ocean once in a while.............

amazing work Sami........

Last two lines indicate that, even in days of yore, travel weary and desperately lonely sailors were--at the conclusion of a journey-- looking to put into the warmest, most inviting "port" they could find.
"Schooners" is a verbal adventure, Captain Sami!

Love the pictures and the poem. This even made me miss the older films that were about this era. They do not seem as pretty on the sea any more...do they? Kathie

Old sailors, one lonely fate awaits in the unknown

Under sky’s bosom, ancient winds are constantly blown
Splendid imagination, the real struggle of a sailor is portrayed so skillfully and with details, reader can easily travel with the writer, the fate unknown is relevant to any sailor and so true, the hope he keeps in his mind is his driving force, the pictures you put adds the impact, excellent writing

This is a beautiful tribute to sailors of the three masted ships. They where a brave crew that sailed the briny blue. I have two brothers that served in the Navy, and for them I thank you for this poem. Well done dear poet.

First, I want to say that I think that by far this is the most catchy and appealing title you've had. Now I could feel the action and the waves of the ocean strike as these brave sailors grasp on to their lives. You've painted very vivid images of the struggles at sea. My favorite line was, "Fair maidens wait upon heroes, anxiously dashing." I think that it was very emotionally impacted. Keep dazzling us Sam. Thanks for sharing.

The call of the sea - the life of a mariner - always fascinating to me. You've captured that feeling so well in this piece.
