Ocean: #360DaysofSymbols

Day 7 of 360 Days of Symbols. Today’s symbol? Ocean.

The water is the heart of the world. Sunset stains ocean red and a lone boat rides the tides, bopping up and down at each crest and fall. The sound is like a whisper of silence, the sound of blood in a vein, a heartbeat of water and wave.

On the boat are gallows stretching the entire ship, with bodies hung and swinging with each wave. The dead heads are bowed down like prayer, and their dead hands are clasped together, like prayer, and their dead mouths are sewn open, like prayer.

The city on the shore, hung up above eroded cliffs, it does not know what is coming towards them, it does not know what this ship calls, and what follows it thundering the bottom of the ocean.
