Bluster ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #296

With some bluster
Does the wind complain
Drives the sea
And the clouds
To fraught disdain

In these throes do I
Count my many blessings
For the calm
Which stills me
Deep inside

Unlike the waves
Upon the water
And the sky
My mind is quiet
Without torment to promote a cry

And while horizon
Soon the sun obscures
The star within
Shines bright
With everlasting light

Stillness ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #167

On some unseen horizon
Beyond my peace of mind
Where shadows play
In savage grey
And hope has not yet
Even hope

No flutter on the water
No ripple in the wind
No fish or whale
To breech the sea
No gull on wing
To cry the air alive
No colour falls to eye

In this world
Of nothingness
In stillness
Drifted I

Aboard a ship
No sails were set
Devoid of all intent
My mind awash
In listless thought
No acts of love
From feckless heart

Yet all the while
And deep below
This ship becalmed
My spirit spare
A current
Ran unseen

It swirled
And tossed
It mustered
Forces unbeknown
Which bubbled to the top
