⚜︎ ⚜︎ ⚜︎








Merciless was the sea that sent spray

As fine as angel’s breath into the mist

Sea-skuas danced, twisting and planing

In search of bloodless prey

Waves, deep and cavernous as mountain rocks

Gripped and threw the small boat fiercely

Its bulwarks heaved, creaked, moaned,

The dark night a blanket of anxious dreams

Which swept on, as shoreline lights

Sparked on the horizon

A fond memory of shore nights, warm sheets

and comforts embrace

Flickering but faintly, whilst the gallant seamen

Wrestled the evil night

Baladin was delivered the tide

In soft mornings broken peace

He lay wrapped with discarded blankets

Shivering and thankful as a child

Returning from weekend excursions

This tale his sad eyes lit with the farmhouse lantern

and told in memory of his sweet friend Mar

Who was carried from the beach by the village men

Who found Baladin so uncertain and dazed

The morning after that awful storm broke

So malevolent and merciless

written 07.1991
