Crystal sands

The water whips up ferociously
over the railings and she lists to the starboard
the sheets have all been brought down
they said the warning flares had been shot
though through the fog
I could barely see the night sky afore me

Huddled beneath the deck with blankets
my arms wrapped about her middle
Safely hidden from the moorings twist
the winds bellow topside
screaming into the hollow of eve
and ancient mariners ride the crests
their voices tainted with the red sea

Still the sweetness of her carries me
into realms of softened waters
where the blue of liquid meets the blue of horizons
islands filled with refuge
a safe port to lie on crystal sands
wrapped tightly in her arms
