Finding a harbour in the times of storm brings security & refreshment.

(Pictures – Scarborough Harbour, N Yorkshire)

Harbour light now in view,

As stricken, storm-tossed

vessel seeks refuge.

Welcome sight,

relief’s at hand

Place of safety beckons.

Danger recedes, with

respite from raging seas


Broken barque carrying

battered seafarers

ever closer to their destination

Fear subsiding, hopes arising

Soon to be compassed

by the shelter of desired haven

Voyage complete

Trauma soon forgotten


‘Til repaired, restored

They venture forth again
