ships passing at sea are like people passing in the street

A chapter in the book Cloud Shadows

Ships In the NIght

by Cass Carlton

Strange ships tall ships
Pass in the night
Through the mists
And out of sight
Out of mind

Bound on their voyages
Plotted is the chart
An unexpected, fateless tryst
So soon to part
And leave behind

Strange ships , hardships
Filled with raucous singing
Pass beneath the silent skies
And seagulls winging
On the wind.

These words came to me after a slight collision with a person I never met again and wondered why it had happened. I still don't know , but I wonder if he does.
