PostSubject: Leviathan   Wed Nov 30, 2011 3:07 am

Leviathan

Abstract delineations,
outlining boundaries of imagination.

Closing in on realization,
thoughts in clouds,
changing shapes,
in visual skyscapes.

From the heart,
falling on deaf ears,
no one hears,
the creaking of the rudder,
under the strain
as the helmsman veers.

Towards the horizon,
but the world is flat,
the salt has lost it's taste.

Sea monsters abound,
to the edge,
compass broken,
set a course,
all hands...
lost at see.

Oh my goodness, you have no idea how delighted I am to see some of your poetry back on. I love the changes you made, I think this one might be just a tad bit more powerful than the last version, just a tad. Love it!

Love this, great imagery and the line 'compass broken...all hands lost at 'see' rather than sea..what a beckoning to the lost souls.

This gave me such Glory bumps to write...an unforgetable experience moved through me like a billion words shot out of a cannon exploding into flames at once skimming the surface of the sea rapidly rushing past me and cooling...slowing down to just...the "enough" that was required to sprinkle gently...upon the page.
To G-D be the Glory!

There is such awesome beauty and power in the description of a leviathan found in Job 41. And God created him and handles him like a puppy!
