Lighthouse (O.S.I.)

This week's O.S.I. prompt is Lighthouse. I envisioned sailors lost at sea and the glory of a lighthouse in the distance.

Portentous waves
Ravenous souls thirst
Portentous waves
Sea creatures hum and stir
Driven by a watery hearse
Madness heightened by the cursed
Portentous waves

Sea babes seduce sailors
Temptress fins beguile
Sea babes seduce sailors
Cast overboard in glee
Hearts are in denial
Fear ceases for awhile
Sea babes seduce sailors

Flickering light of midnight
Burns like a heavenly flag
Flickering light of midnight
Heavenly siren of the sea
Boat racing like a stag
Lost spirits cannot lag
Flickering light of midnight

My favorite lines-
"Sea creatures hum and stir
Driven by a watery hearse
Madness heightened by the cursed
Flickering light of midnight
Heavenly siren of the sea
Lost spirits cannot lag
Flickering light of midnight"

Lighthouses are indeed most interesting topics as well as metaphors as beacons in our lives. A very interesting take on the prompt. I enjoyed your writing.

hey write girl, you expertly enfused your words
with motion and the feeling of being overpowered
by nature. the repetion is just right.
