Helpless ones, gently tossed on waters blue.
Spiraling above, dark my hunger grows,
ravenously pounding savage green hue.
With growling intensity, black wind blows.

They smell of fear, and turn their sails to flee;
with fervent slashing, soon I render them
swirling tattered flags of futility.
I block the sun both sky and hopes grow dim.

Mast and plank shatter beneath hale-laced rain.
Deep in wooden bowels my prey does cower.
My inert toy has ceased to entertain.
Crackling green claws mangle, and I devour.

With hunger sated, mirror sea, calm sky,
The tranquil trap reset, in wait I lie.

Perfect title - Red Sky in Morning (sailors take warning) Good weather indicator in the mountains, too. Never thought of personifying it, though. Excellent! - David

And my first read of yours is a sonnet! I am a lover of the sonnet form and enjoy reading good ones. This is very well done! Myrna

Great sonnet! I've been working on this form for the past couple of years and I admire anyone who attempts it. And the sailing/sea setting is perfect. Good job.
