On Distant Seas

Each dawn I’m drawn down to this shore--
to soft white sand and gentle breeze;           
dream of my love on distant seas

sailed off to fight another's war.
“Pink sky in morn, sailors be warned!”
I pray he will return once more,

but life holds no such guarantees.
Each dawn, I’m drawn down to this shore...

  1. I really like this poem. I am left wondering about his safe return. I want to return to the shore and wait alongside this woman too.
    I am inspired to try creating an Octain.

    in your words.
