an island out-
post hosting a
beacon bright;
scanning the night,
offering sight 
to wayward
He stands on 
watch, keeping 
the lamp sweep-
ing the water.Buoys 
bob in the darkness,
harkening the bells 
with the swell of each 
wave. Deep bellow-
ing horns cut the evening
fog, leaving a long echo 
from harbor to shore. A 
solitary ex-sailor never fails 
to offer security; a sentinel 
sure and silent. Alone in the night, a beacon bright.
