THE VOYAGE AWAITING

THE VOYAGE AWAITING

A Poem by T



Deep within the waters run
this sailing vessel sails as one
over frightening Triton's grasp
amid the alluring Sirens requests.

The waters are mild and azure green
but within their depths remains unseen
the turbulence in this voyage taken
the man behind the wooden curtain. 

The multiple masted ship begins
rigged and ready but still within
awaiting now the call of port
awaiting for a guide of sort. 

Swiftly running, beauty and speed
stored within unconscious need. 
Is there a moment he can take
and call upon for honors sake?

Lost within this green and blue
something remains unsaid tis true
"Sabrina come at my request"
He feels the overwhelming quest.

Summoning Goddess of amber hair
"Sabrina is it you are there?"
Thou art summoned, save him then
this man among the best of men. 

Until she comes this ship remains
alone upon the waters vain
without affect from loves embrace
emotion buried, expressionless face. 

Awaiting the voyage to begin
keeping the cargo safe within
while she is sleeping on coral bed
soon to loosen words unsaid. 

And bring the answers to questions asked
within this vessel strong and masked
At thy request she will appear
to guide this ship in the voyage it fears.

A beautiful grasp of a ship and the sea
With this you certainly have taken me
back to the ocean for me to see
how my futre dreams will help me be free
Small yachts have taken me past the ocean's shore
and I will enjoy the universe much more
Many years have come and a few more I hope
Poetry has greatly help me cope sam '1929-
Thank you

An amazing piece of poetry. I'm at a loss for words to describe how magnificent this poem is. You wrote it very well, and the message you are conveying is not loss within the beautiful words you have weaved. This has to be one of the greatest poems I have ever read. I really enjoyed it a lot.

What great metre and flow! The entire poem rings with skill and creativity. You've marvellously expressed what so many feel but aren't able to put down on paper/on wc.org or articulate.

It's a fine and lovely piece of writing. Thank you for sharing it with me.

This has to be one of the best poems I have yet to read on writerscafe. It was marvelous..descriptive yet sometimes ambiguous. Haunting and beautiful. Thank you for writing this...

... ah, yes, those quests we set out for, where we don�t know the destination, often don�t know the embarkation port or indeed the purpose ... but with time it all unfolds. And THAT�S the real journey of conquest and discovery!
