At about the same time as Marlowe (last post) is contemplating his problems, Dru is somewhere else with problems of her own. I thought it was about time I showed our heroine… Decided to just show a suggestion of the background. I hope you can tell she’s on a ship.
UPDATE: In from Tom – new poem!
It seemed like such a fine idea
to cut the cable, setting free
this ship of fools, like wise Sophia
teaching him a lesson, see!
The deed is done, though now I wonder
if in my haste to steal his thunder
by leaving him marooned alone
I’m not mistaken in my tone?
Perhaps if I’d been less reproaching,
not let his people’s ways be mine–
though in my anger it seemed fine–
I wouldn’t now these doubts be broaching.
Now what’s that bumping on the hull!?
A bear, a duck, a wayward gull?
And now for something completely different – a ship in the mist… a sneak peak at an illustration from our new project which will be coming soon to a computer near you… stayed tuned, we want to start posting Midsummer’s Day!
UPDATE: New poem from Tom – some further hints for the new project…
For when the Moon is waxing strange
and currents run just so
a portal opens to the world
where elder legends go…
I guess it’s not really that scary when you keep the scale of the ship in mind… and I have the feeling that a creature like that would not be days from shore so perhaps they will make landfall the next day!
Let’s see where the story goes next when Tom has a chance to post a new poem in the comments!
UPDATE: Please read the comments for one of the best poems yet!
Tom’s last poem left the Grinch, the stranger and the morse at the top of a cliff contemplating a sea voyage in a strange ship. I couldn’t resist putting this image down. Hope you like the ship! I see her as a sentient being who makes her living ferrying the occasional adventurer across these remote waters… Let’s see what Tom makes of it all 😉
