The Circle of a Sailor’s Life

5 Apr

There it floats
alone in the dark,
in silence of it’s own magnificence.
Solitude at its best,
in the middle of the ocean.

Desperate sailor sitting on a deck,
gazing at the frozen surface,
stars are his only bright companion.
The calmness is surreal.

His lungs exhaling cold air
as the last plain sign of despair.
Death awaits.

On the sea he was born.
On the sea he dies.
That is the circle of a sailor’s life.

    A cautionary tale. I would not make a good sailor.
