Dear Ship at Sea

Dear Ship at Sea

Don’t keel over now

Don’t keel over

You are not such a mistake

Like Titanic on a northern winter night

 

Dear Ship at Sea

You are my safe haven

A troubled danger home

My banana

My mental trip to far lands

 

Dear Ship at Sea

The road of the Hazel Grouse village

Will take me nowhere

Like you do

 

Dear Ship at Sea

I hoped we wouldn’t be apart

But you move leagues onwards

Leagues more away from me

The Green Vale

A lake was in the valley

greener than any other.

O how beautiful was the water

With a waterfall

On the north side

And a little stream

Running along to sea

With blue depths

And Golden fish

All the wondrous plants

And a house made by ants

Living

A girl with worn-out pants.

No human had ever been there

Not before me

The trees could tell and see.

I asked them

The wise old trees

How come had nobody found this place

Before the little sprite

Who loves nature with all her heart.

It is her destiny

They told me

To protect with weapons

These green hills

That had never seen grinding mills.

It was a secret land

In the palm of my hand

Undiscovered wonders

Unfound treasures

Unsearched mountains

No-one’s seas.

What was this place

Of useable boundaries?

And all of it

Everything

New every morning

Every month

Every day

Every year

With no end

Till Eternity.

In this vale of green

In paradise

Next to the stream

Close to the plants

Was a house built by ants

And in the house was a girl

A girl and her worn-out pants.

The girl was a sister, a mother,

To the little animals

That lived in the trees

The trees that could talk and see.

It was her own little kingdom

And the vale of green

Had never been found

Except by one being

A sprite

An elf

Mind you that

She is the girl

Daughter to an elven king.

And she with fairy ears

Was stronger than humans

She was as ancient as the earth

She remembered the dragons

And destruction of her people.

She had fled long ago

She was the last of her kind

And in the vale of green

By the lake and the vale-cutting stream

I witnessed her die and lay in peace once more.

The Wooden Rattle of Bones

The wooden rattle of bones
fills this lake.
I lay numb on the bottom of the lake
the water took everything from me.
Salt on my skin
makes my cuts bleed.
Water cleans my cuts
Ships are keeled over by storms.
From the ends of my life
Humans are sad.
I am a goddess of the seas,
I know the love of seamen.
My tears as pearls are washed away
on to the shores of mortals.
How long is the time I could be
absolutely miserable?
You cannot see me,
my charger.
As my blood boils
we approach each other,
but the waves take your ship away.
Is there a place
where sea and air could fare together?

The Rocky Silence of Flesh

The rocky silence of flesh empties this land.

I lay vibrant on the top of this earth

water gave everything to you.

Salt in my veins

makes my cuts heal.

Water stains my cuts

Ships sing songs to storms.

From the beginnings of my life

Humans are joyous.

I am no goddess of no seas,

I do not know the love of seamen.

My tears as pearls are kept in small vaults

never to be seen by mortals.

How short is the time I could be

absolutely merry?

You can see me,

my steed.

As my blood cools,

we distance ourselves,

but the waves keep bringing your ship back.

Is there a place

where land and air could leave each other lonesome?
