An Adventurous Fight

Prior to the storm

laughter could be heard

a fresh new captain

who had much to learn

Daring the storm to come

he sailed into the wind

rain beating down

with a message to send

The captain danced

as the waves began to roar

as the boat rocked

his arrogance soared

Lightening strikes

electricity in the air

a fight with nature

there is a dare

Thunder roars

waves going over the boat

the captain climbs to the top sail

and begins to gloat

The next few minutes

the scene is a blur

the outcome uncertain

the captain’s spirit undeterred

The storm passes

calmness returns

the boat reappears

all concerned

The captain shouts

I have defeated the storm

the universe is mine

the ultimate life form

Sailing into the sunset

happy as can be

looking for the next adventure

his spirit filled with glee
