SAILORS AT PORT

Drogheda on Midsummer 2015

 

Like sentinels

They stood

On rigged sail´s ropes

Watchful from above

While swarms of

White smoke flew by

And dissipated before

The blue canvas

 .

We looked up

As to bird´s nests in clouds

Waiting for them to fly

Longing to be swapped

To their watch posts

A bird´s eye view

It would diminish the tiny

Burdens of yearning flocks

 .

The expanse

Awes our humble souls

Unites us to hold

On to each other

On wavy decks

On board

Our vessel of life

A pledge

 .
