Maltese Falcon

Maltese Falcon

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

yes

"

The bow slammed deep

Into the wild oncoming seas

Hammering the suffering galleon

Down into its knees

 

The shaking stays whipped

In the fierce screaming wind

Trashed sails howled out

Like a wild cat being skinned

 

Decks were awash

With black seas running wild

On a course set to oblivion

On a ghost ship exiled

 

Fated crew of the doomed ship

On their final voyage to hell

Faced terminal disasters

From each giant swell

 

The stolen Maltese Falcon

Deep in the Pirate ship’s hold

With its jewels and blank eyes

Would never be sold

 

Where the ship went under

There were no eyes left to see

From the black of deep ocean

None would be free

WOW! I've been dishing out flippant reviews this morning, but this poem stops me dead in my tracks. I sat up & paid attention. Very powerful writing, passionate scene-building to reflect the power of the sea. Well-crafted rhyme & rhythm, I could almost feel the ship tipping this way & that as I read. You were on fire when you wrote this! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
