A lone ship sails through the deep blue
pallid sails tinged golden in the early light.
Trailing pirate ship attempts to make its move
before swooping dragons offer a worthwhile distraction
the air thick with cannon smoke and dragon fire.
Immaculate vessel navigates through island chains
dinosaurs roaring at the passing ship
before turning on one another.
Vast canescent birds circle above
sunlight peeking through snowy feathers
as sea serpents trail alongside
ochre scales shine in the azure
toothed maws gleaming
kraken waiting up ahead
tentacles writhing in the oceans breath.
streak of indigo runs through flaxen plains.
Mountains ascend and cascade
as horsemen charge forth besieging august castles
migrating mammoths oblivious
fur pink in the effulgence of dusk
as the ship exits the river.
Space ships dogfight in the astral firmament
as the dragons fly home by moonlight
tattered pirate flag fluttering in clenched jaws
sea serpents pulling tentacles below the naval plane
watched by sky raft wanderers drifting on shadow currents.
The abyss clears
as the ashen ship
dissipates on tenebrous winds
phantasm wisps lost to the night.
Just another day in the clouds.
