Catherine Lang

Before the Wind

Full sailed
she races through the moonless night.
Fear rises with the wailing wind.
Wave-battered timbers groan.
Sea drenched ghosts reel and strain,
trying to make all fast.
Looming clouds
block out the guiding stars.
The seaweed tang
screams of sanctuary.
Red and green eyes blink in the dark.
Safe harbour.
