At sea


The great boat will sink

it struggles on the brink 

of forceful, treacherous waves 


the seasond captain saw 

the crew stand in awe 

as the mast broke and vanished in the haze

    That is a sinking feeling, no pun intended. Nice.

    I can picture the mighty sea engulfing the entire ship and its crew. An adventuresome poem for sure. ~ Sonia

    Well, I am left to guess what happened to the ship to make it sink? It is short, and leaves the reader guessing...or this is a symbolic short poem to reflect a sinking feeling the author is trying to depict... Nice!
