“I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.” Herman Melville (Moby Dick)

This Salty Tango

A sea dirge leaking through the water,
somber, laden with lays of sorrows,
held in melancholia, carried on the wind,
seeking ears to hear the sorrow of seas,
the tide of conflict never ebbing, ever
washing over us, as we chart candy 
waters in this salty tango across every
crest in a boat beneath a sunny sky,
which sings to us of tomorrows.
