Capsized Ship

Capsized Ship

The darkness filled the sky
as the ship tossed from side to side.
The rain began to pour,
as the men turned in for the shore.
The screams of the men on board could be heard 
from miles on cord.
The ship began to sink
as all the men jumped from the flashing brink.
As the waters tossed the ship the storms began to cease. 
The men floated for hours ,then death came out with power.
No one was found not even a sound.
As the mystery of the ship and the men who were lost
the waters on the gulf came at a cost.
The ship and the fellows who once was on board
must be buried in the deep sand of the waters lords.
To all the men who have been lost at sea
may your soul be set free.

Great job, Kay(as usual). 
Loved the tribute. 
You were watching The Perfect Storm last night, weren't you? lol. I like that movie, though, and the song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, by Gordon Lightfoot. 
Enjoyed that very much, 

Matthew.

Thank you dear friend, It just came to me this morning no reason why, I had this thought of the lost men and women at sea, then the words just flowed into my mind, But thank you so much for the beautiful words, it means the world to me that you guys are so kind. May you have a blessed and wonderful day friend.

HI Kay...How very sad.  The sea is mysterious and dangerous...and so many lives have been lost to its unpredictable nature.  I could see the scene in my mind...and the silence after when every last man lost his life to the ocean's turmoil....Well done.  xo ;)
