Old Sea Dog

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

A castaway trying for a better life

all aboard feeling winters bite.

Huge waves roll over the bow. Wow

how the wind howls bouncing me up

and down as I cry for shelter. Rough

seas beg me to turn tail

and I whine

forcing makeshift reef and bowlines

because torn sails from wind and rain

leave me playing dead in waves.

I’m only hoping I can set a course

for foreign shores,

disembark

and feel the sand beneath my paws.

"This is a poem about a dog who was found on a sheet of ice drifting in the Baltic Sea." I wanted to post this note that you attached to the story as a metatag.
