Homeward Bound……

 

483d-ghost-ship-poster

AS the plumed waves rushed towards the shore,

under the gaze of the desolate moon,

the ghost ship sailed on one quest more

it’s path lit by the moonlights gloom.

Many long years they’d sailed the seas,

Done evil things they’d forever regret

ignored all their victims plaintive pleas,

until they were cursed to never forget.

For a hundred years they served their time,

kept from life, forgetting it’s pleasure,

no crumb could be eaten, water tasted like brine

only thus could they pay full measure.

They traversed the seas by starlit charts,

long gone worlds had died to light

the way to their final resting place,

The ghost crew would find peace tonight…….

  8. Haunted ghost ships still captivate us today, and the interest has only grown since Johnny Depp and cast thrilled us in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie trilogy. Perhaps one day more stories of ghost ships being reported at sea will surface, as their tales seem to never end. Modern-day tragedies at sea still occur, and so do the ghosts that eventually haunt them… :o)
