Night of the Ocean

Listen as the night

Falls to the ocean

And drapes twilight

With stars and a moon;

The tumbling waves

Become tamed tides,

The souls of the dead

Begin to walk across

The moonlit waters

Wandering ever in vain

Till they return home.

    1. Thank you. I incorporated the ancient Greeks’ belief that when people die away from their place of living, especially another land, the souls of the dead travel back to their homes. And since I am always fascinated by the ghost ships, ghosts of the sea, revenants, and the supernatural, the poem sprang from my mind’s eyes.
