The Lighthouse - Poem by Katherine Sessor

The light house, the guardian angel of the night
She shines her light for all the lost sailors passing by
Her beam bright as the sun, flashing through the night sky

The lighthouse, a soldier during the storms
Standing tall, unafraid of the chaos
Her light piercing through the storm like sharp knives

The light house the night owl of the day
Sleeping and cozzed away until the night
Her beam off as silent as a deer not wanting to be found

    The purpose of a lighthouse. If only we all had such an easily defined purpose and knew what our job was here on earth. (Report) Reply

    Light house and its services to ship and sailors great. In fact I think that light house represents the noblemen who gives such lights on the human lives of the world they live in. (Report) Reply

    The similes and metaphors cast some illiminating imagery - the opening line is magnificent. S :) (Report) Reply
