have given us Salt Water Tales for our
topic this week. I’m always enchanted with
underwater mysteries, hence my salt water
rhyme. The art is my own digital fantasy.

Lazy waves sparkle with sunbeams
Making easy way to shore
But beneath are deep, dark secrets
Civilizations and pirate ships
Lie beneath waters blue
While tourists sunbathing on shore
Haven’t the least of a clue
The good ship Mary Celeste
Set sail in eighteen seventy two
And never were seen again
The captain, his family and crew.
And what of Flight 19
The Air Force flight of five
Who flew out on routine mission
And were nevermore seen alive.
I love the gentle sound
As waves make their way to land
They whisper to me of their mysteries
While I’m landlocked safe on sand.
