A Rising Gale

Azure, the sky filled with tremendous clouds
So beastly and mischievous,
Leaving you breathless as they slowly overcrowd
The unsettled atmosphere.

Disturbed, the ships are tossed about
Like a small child’s toy
While tousled waves crashing against
Their neglected bodies.

Unsure crew members frantically prepare
For a tussle with the tempest
Whose overwhelming efficacy
Silently declares their capitulation.

Untamable, the somber and blackened sea
Cradles its desperate company
Who, with a wordless plea,
Fight for a surrender.
