The Storm

Out to sea this vessel set sail

Winds soon turned to gale

Battering waves besieged

 Vessel’s hull bucked

Sea spilled in

 The vessel stalled

Making no way against the wind

At all.

Till the Master spoke:

Peace My child

Be still.

This vessel is going to

The other side.

Into the eye of the storm

This vessel did sail.

Winds claimed

As waves retreated

Pumps engaged

Oceans’ water returned

To the sea

Hands hasten

Hatches re-fortified

Planks re-fasten

Heart beats slowed

Deep breaths taken,

As the Master spoke:

Peace my child

Be still.

This vessel is going to

The other side.

Out of the eye of the storm

This vessel did sail.

Cyclone determined

To make its final rail

Winds growled

The tempest hailed.

Timbers strained

Ribbing twisted

Planking cracked

Seams leaked

The vessel was surely lost.

Till the Master spoke:

Peace My child

Be still.

This vessel has reached

The other side.

Again I have been inspired by another blogger!
