Archive for the tag “ark”

lost continents


they sailed along silver waves
in search of higher lands
the maps in their hands
aligned with ancient stars
that never shined so bright

under the bridge women rocked
stitching winter clothing
the children praying
for a higher power
to free them from their plight

as years turned into decades
mountains slowly emerged
caverns like beacons
calling forth their vessels
to dock within the light

escaping the ark


ten thousand whispers
brought down the clouds
turned the river into rain
and dust into life

whispers gently faded
subsisted ‘neath the waves
nearly turned to nothingness
by preying on decay

circles of whispers
sometimes escape the ark
curious metamorphoses
sailing further and further away
