LOST

Post by Mahalia » 24 Oct 2017, 21:08

The search goes on for the missing crew from the Trawler Dianne which capsized in stormy weather off the coast from 1770 last week - One survivor, 2 found deceased and 4 still missing - a terrible tragedy. The sea is a cruel mistress.

LOST ...Maureen Clifford © The #ScribblyBark Poet

There are men that go to the sea in ships
and at home their women wait,
it has been thus all through history
but the sea is no one's mate.

Dianne the huntress lost the fight
against the massive seas
that broke against her ship lapped hull
and bought her to her knees.

The timber hull lies on its side
debris scattered around
in ocean's darkness now she rests
away from mortal sound.

Six men were lost at sea that night
in ocean waves enshrined,
the search continues - as it must
none will be left behind.

The song of whales their eulogy
as oceans lull their sleep.
No roses grace a seaman's grave
and on shore women weep.

**A terrible tragedy - our thoughts are with the families of the lost men at this difficult time.

Thank you Teddy for taking the time to read and comment - sadly it appears that those 4 crewmen will probably never be found now. So much heartbreak for the families involved :(
