“A great iron beast of a ship from another reality” recent musings of mine #WritingCommunity

A great iron beast of a ship from another reality
All along the coast glides in splendid majesty
On a glassy green sea innocent of waves
In a silence ponderous that speaks of great wonders
Now forever left behind in lands distant
Yet forever after borne in the souls of this monolith’s crew
The mighty vessel for a brief moment slows
The shorebound a glimpse to offer
Into the eyes of the sailors upon the deck
Who at the world will ever after look
Through an altered lens
Whose hearts evermore
Will to a distant drum beat
While the audience spellbound
To the spot stands rooted
Perplexed and eternally changed
By a profound silence by an eerie stillness beset
That alongside the magnificent sea giant sailed
Forever away to unknown harbours bearing
Tales unspoken of sights by the seafarers seen
By lofty sails that barely moved guarded
In the soft mist by a gentle breeze borne
All as if ’twere all a mere reverie enigmatic
