Sail Through Time
Nikki Caerteling, Grade 9, Trinity Catholic College
The billowing sails, like floating clouds,
Disappear beyond the moonset horizen,
The gardens are dark, lifeless and empty.
The few flowers slowly wilting.
Timeless wonders never cease.
Age upon age a life must end,
A love be lost for all eternity.
While rays of sunlight still pass through
And light our dim, dark universe,
A ray of hope sets hearts aflame.
With a speck of truth united as one,
Our kindred spirits trust once more.
The world becomes as cold as ice
And black as a moonless night.
Then all at once the tempest passes.
The life returns, creation begins again.
