Steering into the Unknown



artist unknown - credit to whomever
















Two light hearted fools basking in summer's glow
rays of reflection dancing across an aqua blue sea
comforted by rolling waves  gentle ebb and flow
spotted cat prancing around the deck with glee

Captain at the helm, steering into the unknown
Truedessa ,  teasing him with her mighty sword
Do you think Zeus still sits on his golden throne
we could offer him some wine if he came aboard

drifting further out to sea, holding a cargo of dreams
searching for signs bringing them closer to shore
heavy  fog  obscuring vision all is not as it seems
surrounded by darkness, navigation becomes a chore

in the distance a tall pillar of light, guiding the way
chariot of fire soars across clustering black clouds
rising from ashes, a giant phoenix  bird of prey
eerie silence blankets the ship thick velvet shrouds

lightning flashes,  entering an ancient portal gate
cat hisses Captain Pat & Truedessa what now
traveling to the other side,  who knows the date
hidden civilization guardian of the sacred cow

finding themselves in an unknown realm
they set out to explore for hidden treasures
Captain Pat  no longer at the ship's helm
carrying his swords for safety measures

chilling cries circulate the atmosphere
Truedessa whispers trouble up ahead
hidden temple appears, quietly they peer
a woman weeping, sense of deep dread

beautiful white bull, men gathered around
evil in their hearts, weapons ready to harm
Truedessa screams put your spears down
Captain Pat frowns,  grabbing her arm

two light hearted fools dodging flying spears
edging closer to the endangered white cow
spotted cat annoyed biting guards in their rears
Captain Pat declares we will save him, a vow

wielding their sharp swords a fighting battle
woman stops weeping, hope filling her eyes
Truedessa chanting prayers, sudden rattle
from high above the fiery phoenix arises

trembling the guardsmen put down their spears
the woman climbs upon the bulls sleek back
his dark eyes full of love,  they silently tear
smiling she hands Captain Pat  a pearl of black

swooping down they fly on the phoenix's wing
soaring the vast heavens, whirling sensations
side by side on their ship, light hearted fools cling
seeking the bull Taurus in the starry constellations

smiling in wonder, under golden moonbeams
had their adventure just been a daydream...

  1. haha got a big kick
    Out of the cat's trick
    Giving them a bit on the rear
    Making them shed a tear
    I'm sure Zeus still sits there
    One day we'll find his lair
    A day dream you say
    Hmmm who's to say
    But saved in the end
    A growing light hearted fool trend
    Can't be stopped be a puny spear
    Or 50 that cause fear
    A pearl of black too
    Hmmm maybe it is worth money in view haha
    Black and white or grey
    Always find their way.

  7. You and Captain Pat may need to sell movie rights to these adventures someday. Even if the adventure was just a daydream, it was a vivid one for sure. I am glad that the white bull was saved and a happy ending was had :)

  16. This is just wonderful, Truedesa! As always your creative story telling took us to somewhere we could never have imagined to be. This whole series from then & now must be put to a book or so---it would be great reading a fun narrative in contemporary verse. Smiles. I enjoyed it---yes---need i say more? :)

  18. The white bull hooked me, & the cat tickled me, & even though this is my first peek at the Adventure Series with Trudessa & Captain Pat, I really enjoyed the childlike wonder, expected Tin Tin to make an appearance. Your imaginations respect no boundaries.
