Into the Sunset

 

Into the Sunset

Into the Sunset

A sail on the horizon,
filled by desperate thoughts

heard by no one,
falls limp.

Charted destinations
neatly folded, some

never opened,
none achieved.

No destination
for a vessel

drifting rudderless,
crew long parted.

This is my second response to the optional prompt for Day 4 of National/Global Poetry Writing Month – write a poem that is “about something abstract – perhaps an ideal like ‘beauty’ or ‘justice,’ but which discusses or describes that abstraction in the form of relentlessly concrete nouns and adjectives.”
