The Sea Witch

The anchorís bill fails to set hook
into the rocks below;
itís come untethered from its ring,
set down on a plateau.

Itís late into the foggy night,
a storm brewing offshore,
the sailor aboard this small sloop,
thinks his boat is secure.

Heís enrapt in conversation
with a sleek, sultry gal
from the Sea Witch docked alongside,
they are heading for the cannel.

Drifting away from the lagoon
and from his safety line,
canít afford a single mistake,
heís forgotten this time.

You gonna just leave me dangling...what happened?  The sea can be so powerful, you set the stage for a disaster in the fog of this love story.  Very well told!

This is an ominous beginning. Surely you're not leaving me here?

Corinne ..... catching up, by scrolling down, and low and behold, a poem about things nautical that I'd missed. I thought to drop you a note (it's been ages since our work crowded ... see our most recent) but discovered that that is not possible. When did that happen? All is well? Bob
