Beyond Sight

Beyond Sight

Beyond Sight

Standing watch,
darkest night
moisture laden.

Water stillness
haunting,
bellow faint.

Engine thrum,
passing wake,
sounds lost to silence.

Flash seen
too late,
rising rocks.

Fog will swallow the brightest light.

The optional prompt for Day 4 of National Poetry Writing Month/Global Poetry Writing Month at NaPoWriMo 2017 is to emulate Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations by writing a poem that hints at something without actually naming it.
