We Went On The Boat - A Sonnet for David by ROSTI

It was our pride and joy, that boat...our prize.
We'd sail to Key West every year in fall,
After summer downpours left the noon.
We made our pact there as we both had suffered
from the plague ungluing all our lives.
Now, I'm here next to his pallid body - 
pale blue masque on, jaw aslack, grotesque.
He made the leap; he had escaped, was gone
Upon a journey I could not attend.
He left me all alone to to sail solo.
Yet, he was captain and I his lowly mate.
Who would pull the spinnaker to catch the breeze?
Or talk with me as a person, unaffected?
Now, I was all alone just cast upon the water...

I sold that boat...

Silent Cries

Taunting phantoms butcher his coloured back,
Rivers of blood flow down the cruel chains;
Cries resound through the ruthless ship,
Waking Death from his peaceful slumber.

Romantic, close
A subject of sweetest softness
Cats can be loved too

O Devilish Siren

The waves roar.
But you can't drown out the voice.
You can't handle any more.
See you have a choice.
Down to the depths of the churning sea.
Or up the sky's where you can be free.
She sits on a rock.
Not an inch to be moved.
Her gaze you have locked.
But your heart's yet to be soothed.
Her call beckons.
And you know you've lost.
The rocks are your reckoning.
You're life is the cost.
See this is what happens when you mess with.
This is your fate if you listen.
To the devilish sirens song.

Oh sea of love!
How bitter the mem'ries I have!
This place reminisce the pain
Of not seeing my love again.

Your birds up high
Remind me of his goodbye.
Your water so deep
Makes me yearn and weep.

So let your breeze blow,
And dry the tears that flow.
Let your waves take away
The griefs and sorrows that stay.

Oh sea of love!
Erase the mem'ries I have!
Wash them out of the blue,
Take them away with you.

Boat Of Poverty

Why this boat?
Could it be boat of destitution?
Conveying Epidemics, Hunger, Rags,
Malnutrition and Illiteracy.

Descend from me!
Banish from my world!
You cursed word!
You that called education a"Privilege"!
Patrimony of ghetto!

W.H.O called you "Lion of Africa",
U N called you "Agenda ".
Predicament to black,
Livelihood to white.

Harking to conviction,
Capsize and rise no more.
For "Black Rose" to smile again
On the land of plenty.

If I Shall Grow Old 2K13

If these eyes shall become blinded, and if this
hair shall come to be combed thinly and grey;
No, it would not be the end of the world.
I would still see beauty therein this world through
the songs of Crickets and Feathered Songsters.
The breeze would yet whisper and trees still dance.
I would yet smell the freshly bloom of Spring.
I'd still endure Summer's sweltering heat.
I'd yet feel Autumn's leaves crunch 'neath these toes.
I'd still long to be fireside with Winter.
Disabled or not, perhaps I'd yet walk
therein wonderful imagination.
How I'd be forever young at heart!
Then just as one journey came to an end,
I'd indeed greet another with a smile.

Never So Gracious

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

Ode to My Boat

On a sunny day
You give me shade
You carry me 
Throughout the waters
Taking me where I must go

On a winters day
You give me shelter
Keeping me warm 
In a sky
Full of wind and storm

On a good day
We sail
We laugh
We dance on the fields of ocean 
Without a care 
Or cloud in the sky

On a bad day we wait
For the storm to pass
And you keep me afloat
When I cannot swim

When the day comes 
That you cannot sail
Or cannot dance
I will lay with you 
And wait
For your wooden frames 
To come apart

And I will sing to you 
As the storm
To pull you in

cerulean loss

her alabaster lips did drown
the sea with rage that fateful dawn.
how beautiful with skin so pale,
her alabaster lips. did drown
the roar of waves and shredded sail.
Poseidon's wrath on human pawn.
her alabaster lips did drown.
the sea with rage that fateful dawn...

Air of Autumn

The sailor starts his adventure,
and the sea accepts his overture.

Birds flock in flight as a multiple sum,
while the vessel acts like a lost drum.

The ocean is his unstable map,
and the waves continue to clap.

The chef races around the boat,
catching a cup of wind to stay afloat.

His eyes flicker like amber flames,
as he remembers nature's games.

Now, he becomes part of the sky.
His boat, a wooden cloud ready to fly.

Dedicated to my father Blaize Cooke
September 30th 1938 to February 1st 2010
He sailed from San Diego with a crew to Hawaii in the 1960s.

6 From 1,500 - Titanic

Oars part them gently ... Frozen dead in life jackets, Cold, bleak irony.

It's blisteringly faithfully rot,

it's intangible as it's deserving of all,

so many signs,
and signatures to boot...

The wreathe in the sky,

the tree rotation eye,

end of all eagerness,

dredge of the forced peaceful bliss..

The honorary code time'd and then aged like the rot,

and an evening star,
and a really far far...

Grave Robbers

We put the urn aboard ship.
Excubant vigil by starlight kept. 
Cradled in a zephyr grip, 
distant, the desolate catacomb crept.
Homeward, encumbered vessels slip
adorned in the dreams of those who slept.

Trained in Corregidor
gone the Simunul
in the Sulu archipelago
the homeland of the blue
not the land of taboo

From the beauty of woman
and the beautiful island
Jabidah is known one
With ‘Sofia’ it was gone
Justice shall not be gone!

I love you peace. Let's sail together. Layag Sug!

Law is like the Sun and Moon in trust,

Guarding people's  rights and interest,

Some walked taking the law in hands one Dusk,

Going beyond bounds in their possible best,

At dawn,some deaths and handsome wealth lost!

The Specific Ocean

The point is dull upon the spear,
But still it pierced my greatest fear-
That this pain will always worsen
(My sinking ship so wayward steered)
Through the Ocean of my person
Toward a vortex, alas! Am veered!
I'll sail to Hell- cursed excursion!
But, lo! An island doth appear-
The sea doth swell; to Her a burden
My Vessel and I; 'tis clear! 'Tis clear!
That She vows for our submersion,
Crashing upon the rocks rushed near
Shipwrecked! Incurred Her incursion!
When She, so once to me endeared-
How I wish a diff'rent version
Of our tale that endeth here...

Darker Angel

     A conversation with
ends unexpectedly 
    A cloud passing overhead
  The Darker Angel leaves his mark
on the good citizens
      In a cemetery 
a small plant reaches 
     upward for life
A heliotrope - always seeking sunlight 
The remains of a life
   The Darker Angel 
  has had his say 
A small boat 
in a big lake 
   the weather turns gloomy 
  The Darker Angel 
sees his chance 
    the boat is 
rocked by the storm 
    two go under 
    never to return 
 Count your blessings while ye may
     The Darker Angel is waiting for you and me 
  His burning eyes cut through all pretense

Where The Ships Go To Die

In the night, all is dark, when the moon can't be seen
when cool air blows lightly, though cooler still it seems
Not a soul in sight nothing living to be found
not even the waves dare to make their crashing sound

When the ocean is silent, when the bay beckons sleep
not even the willows then dare to weep
for tonight is the night the ships go to sleep

Across the waving beachgrass, and through the deadly peaceful night
lies a bay of silenced memories, in a hazy fog of light
here all sea fairing vessels go, when their adventures have gone dry
And so this is the place, the sacred place, where the ships go to die

Rescued On A Rubber Boat

Rescued on a rubber boat
A toy ship built for one
Not meant to save you from
Driving downpours and malicious monsoons
Solely a transportation device
From one heart to another
The tune of the obsessive ocean
Knocks me out, and I’m floating to the shore
Half mast, half passed

The Days of Malice

Your barque blocks the orb which steers my muse;
change course, you are an intrusion.

Intimidation brands you a martyr,
do threats have a place herein?
Alter your path or die.

Seems a knot has you both anchored;
choking, challenging your journey. 
Old grudges will send you harbored
back to your docks on a gurney.

Fate obstructs the view
when ships align with the moon.
Urania smiles,
hidden underwater shelf
cuts short the days of malice.
