Sea Chanty for a Splintered Sky

..

Red sky at night, and we delight
in the salty spill of song.
Hoist the sails and wait for wind!

Blue moon is rising, mesmerizing
wave and whispered longing.
Hoist the sails and wait for wind!

Gold threads on through the evening hue;
the tides are turning, light has dimmed.
Hoist the sails and wait for wind!

Sea sorrow’s storming. Red sky, in mourning.
Hope’s a sail. We’ll wait for wind.
