New World

High tide
Storm's eye
Men sigh
Land ho
Black earth
Gold dust
Exotic faces
Unknown embraces
Declarations broken
Flags unfurled
Victory brandished
Old world erased
For the glory
Of new worlds

I feel like I just hit the beach with those tired sailors dreaming of conquest. You have a wonderful command of the language. Words are definitely your tools for creation!!

You know, I like, or it's more of a drive really.. to write? I had written a chunk of my background some time ago, then went into mostly posting poetry. I never thought you'd wind up to be such a great inspiration to me! Anyway..this is another one..and the nack you have for condensing it. Have you looked into the wrap type? Me..
