50 Word Stories: Redemption

Without a breath of wind, the galleon slid into the heaving fog dispersing not a ripple. Only the ship’s ensign, an empty circle black on white, fluttered in the rancid air. A nationless ship on a nameless sea and only me to sail her. Limbo our voyage, redemption our goal.

50 Word Stories: Wonderful Departures

 The angled sunlight made mirrors of the water, the sky below as above. It was like sailing between worlds in neither one realm nor the other, a breath held. My small boat made passage as though on that final trip we all must take. If so, what a wonderful departure. Author's Note: as almost […]

Moonlit Seas

 Upon a moonbeam  Casted sail To ride across A moonlit veil To crest the stars Obsidian sea And drift my way Back home to thee La Luna calls In silvered song In wake I strive To carry on And though I know This just a dream It still to me  Celestial seems   (Image courtesy of khaotik-memeredus on deviantart.com)

Susceptible

 A heart is a delicate vessel sailing through a life of crimson seas in search of that rarest of commodities; that yearning for love leaves it susceptible.        

Sail On

I sail across to distant shores on liquid beams of gold;  Sea mist swirls across my vision quickly dissipating in their glow. I do not remember where I came from, but know to sail on? It is the way; it is the only way. Drops of rainbow dew pool on my skin. Each colour reminds […]
