Lucas Zulu‘s poem: Ships

As I stand on the rocky shore

gazing admiringly at the blue silver

sea, there are maverick ships that sail alone,

bold vessels that follows their own compass

even though they are travelling

in a flotilla of boats. Bohemian keels that glide

over the tsunami and lion-hearted yachts that leaves the port

and put a bold face upon the violent billows,

barely to discover new landscapes. They ride waves

and floats above qualms that sank

many doubtful ships

before they begin to cruise.
