POEM: Sunset on the Sea

By Berniegourley @berniegourley

POEM: Sunset on the SeaWill those trawlers haul their nets through the night,
even after darkness has descended?
When clustered stars offer the only light,
and the land-locked day has long since ended?

Are fishing vessels like the dreaded shark,
that swims endlessly when wetted by sea?
No mourning nor merriment owed the dark,
and miles between the hull and the quay.

They persistently glide on ocean tides,
measuring time by space left in the hold.
There's a secret some sailors will confide,
each outing ends in a death unforetold.

There is the pleasant death of days at rest,
but then there's becoming Poseidon's guest.
