Dark Tides

Dark Tides

A Poem by SyberRose

The sky is starless in a black opal night
but the full moon is discontented~
The insecure sun coveting moonlight,
 and ebony winds are disenchanted...
Dark tides murmur within cold-blooded seas
as emerald seaweed clings to the shore~
The cold dark waves beckon and tease,
while a fabled nymph seduces deaths door...
Upon a sunken vessel of pleasures
 is a harbor in the deep sea trenches~
Skeletons in an ocean of treasures,
 blood rubies, and bones of pirate wenches...
A beacon light warns of treacherous shoals,
within bleak ocean of lost phantom souls.

Oh Rose. This one is wonderfully dark and pirate~like. Sea stories with mermaids and wenches, treasure and bones....oh yes. The images painted here are crystal clear. The rhyme scheme builds and flows. Nice read! Angi~

You make the sea an enchanting place to be, within that you have created a mood of uneasiness as you describe the elements so well and then to compound it all theres a pretty mermaid that would make any ship go off course.

While men are at sea for a length of time I am not surprised they create their own beautiful images of woman and she might as well be beautiful.

Vivid images and a rolling flow evocative of the sea. thank you so much for sharing this. I particularly liked the images in the forst stanza - the doscontented mon and disenchanted winds set up the remainder of the piece very nicely to my ear.
