A Short and Illustrated Thought #35

Posted in Genoa, Granducci, Keds, Norfolk, Photography, Simonetta on September 27, 2012 by smpiv

A six year old pirate eye

cast the limitless sea

Parenthetically

 

The Simonetta stands, a steel tree

Salt etched, painted haunches peal

Laden with coal

 

Dirty coal

 

Rat run hawsers

Puffing ferrous shanks

Moorings tied taught & tight

 

Red Ked feet

up a steel & vertical sheet

10, 20, 30, 40 feet

 

And then some

 

Latin laced Italian

Hand gestures taught

Heave ho & away we go

 

Norfolk shores far behind

The sky now dark & gray

That special gray

 

For storms at sea

 

Red Ked feet

Now high

Now low

 

“Basta!”

 

Steel hull heals hard

10, 20, 30

Hoorah!

 

“Silencio!”

 

That special gray,

that lovely gray

parts a setting sun

 

 Milky Way smears

the ebon sky

a Mariner’s sky

 

A Red sky

 

Bubbles picked from bubbly wine

Flatter than the sea outside

Porpoise dash beside

 

Genoa sits & waits

The Med against a sea gate

Roman stones on Roman stones

 

A confection of our past

From this shore once cast

Red Ked feet,

A past

 

To meet
