Over Lake Erie

Post by H.J. Dean » Thu Aug 08, 2013 5:53 am

SUDDENLY (over Lake Erie)

I urged my weary craft along
Till sleepless wing dipped
Toward the sea as Morpheus reached
It spun and spiraled slowly down
And crashed through rolling surge
With controls in hand at peaceful rest
Captive pilot silent sinking

Then bitter tugging jolt as wheels
Bounce off the cold hard surf
And instinctive throttle's forward push
Lifts my wakened plane aloft
And illusion only sinks to such a grave
Locked beneath the thunderous waves
