Gulf Stream~by Paul Lenzi



Gulf Stream


NASA Satellite Photo

swift river that runs

through the heart

of a lumbering sea

carries African warmth

moist ghosts of Atlantis

in restless deep currents

aswirl round the treasures

of Blackbeard through

green Caribbean lanes

slingshot to north by

northeast cutting course

across plunder routes

red cries of Viking clans

shrill on the waterwind

crashed to its purpose

against windward isles

fomenting the storms

that sweep Europe

with seasons of history



From my book Ephemera
