Two Ships (poem and painting)

Two Ships
watercolour on paper
12″x18″

silent dark water

bereft of light

two ships cross each other

in the silence of the night

what life is there on either

what work or play or fright

what unknown seabound voyager

in doubt awaits first light

how many lie in slumber

ensconced in surreal plight

how many wait and wonder

when land will be in sight

and still the ships forge deeper

in pertinacious flight

away from one another

away and out of sight

Old San Juan, Puerto Rico (poem and painting)

Old San Juan, Puerto Rico
watercolour on paper
11″x15″

silence in the old city

looking over the blue sea

ancient white buildings

in bright sunlight shimmering

do mossy walls keep

things out or things in?

does the silence mean peace?

do the buildings give rest?

are the mossy walls sound?

is there fun in Old San Juan?
