The taste for life gone flat as day old ale
Steel sky fore-warns a fast approaching storm
Resolved this day one last time to set sail
The light subdued blurs edge of sharpest form

Horizon lost in swell of monstrous sea
Bent to his task one old salt sets his keel
Hard weathered brow shields eyes cast inwardly
That seek but yet one secret not revealed

Where air and water meet as one to fly
Swift cresting waves above his wanting craft
So tired has he now grown of all the lies
The storm that takes him home is his life raft

Be-calmed at last by what has passed this day
The salt in leagues of truth is swept away

Dr.Moose1,
Well I'm glad, The salt in leagues of truth
has swept away. Enjoyed the read.
