‘The sea was a dark green’

The sea was a dark green 
As it lapped at the edge 
Of an indistinct horizon 
Beneath a mottled sky 
A’smeared with blotches of granite gray 

Like the spectral breaths 
Of the long forgotten souls 
From a bygone yesteryear

While a bank of clouds
Dappled by disconsolation
In a hue of regret
Hovered above the land
Besmirched by the whispered sorrows
Rising from the souls of the living 

Who abided in a destitute dominion 
Defiled by hopes relinquished 
Vanished in the forlorn mists
Of an erstwhile utopian realm
