A bloody moon rose, hungry, through the mist
to wash his crimson glow across the waves
and froth the surging whitecaps with the kiss
that sent ten thousand sailors to their graves.

Beneath that vicious moon, a sail was set –
as was the fate of some poor, hapless crew
oblivious to the impending threat
that drifted ever closer through the blue.

The moon smiled sweetly, bathing naked steel,
as cannon shuddered through the velvet night
to rend the sodden trader, hull and keel
and put an end to her frenetic flight.

The captain's grin shone redder than his sword
As he o'ersaw the booty brought aboard.
...
Lol, I said booty.

Anyway, I was at the beach the other night for the supermoon, and it came up red and fabulous. It was amazing.

I'm impressed at how easily this flowed. It almost seemed to flow in one piece from you, as though you didn't have to substitute a single line to get the rhyme you wanted.

I love, love, LOVE that first stanza. Beautiful imagery. How was the supermoon? I missed it...I even meant to set an alarm so I'd remember to take a look...but I still forgot. :(

Aww, sorry you missed it. D: It was spiffy. It was probably better from the beach. Not much light pollution, even though the humidity made it sort of blurry.
