Under the Spell of Artificial Lights

This is Chōka with 5-7-5-7-5-7-7  pattern in English, simply because I can’t speak and write Japanese. ^^
I wrote this one based on a beautiful picture from this week Monday Memories as my thank-you-post for Perfect Poet Award for Week 53 .
For week 54, I nominate sweetpea.

Under the Spell of Artificial Lights


Unsolved dilemma;

not being able to love,

either land or sea,

this boat pledged a solid vow:

to sail no more,

questioning would he be gone

when those lights go out.
