The Ship

Prose by

 Brye Andrew David Briggs


It is incredible the weight they pull on the keel.

The beak seems to constantly point downward into the dark depths below - into the abyss from which there is no return. It as if the demons pulling on it were made of osmium.  The sea seems to thrash its way through the deck as the big jibs draw forth and the top gallants are yanked to one side by cruel and wicked dark spirits with even greater force.  The mains flap, yet are collapsed for the most part as it becomes apparent that this is a totally unnatural phenomenon surrounding me and my ship.  A speck within the vastness of the sea aimlessly nearing the chaotic edges of the earth, blindly and dangerously through the valleys of darkness I find myself clinging to the wheel in full awareness that I am at the mercy of my ship and powers that put me here in the first place.  A place of unforgiving desperation and helplessness that I have endured before… thank God.  

Instead of being overwhelmed, I dig deep as I sometimes must and steady the wheel.  I begin to remember who I am and why I am here - I am prepared for this journey.  I will stay the course.  I know where I am and I know what it takes to get through these torrent waters.  I chose this ship with great vision and my faith in it will prevail and so shall I.

Damned are those demons and dark spirits and damned are those unearthly works at hand and damned will I be should I allow myself to succumb to those weaker and pathetic powers.  I have a light in me that can easily shine through the darkness and I will unleash it with great vengeance and that time that has come.  I have new skies, new seas, new lands and new discoveries that give me new and undying purpose.

There was never a destination in the first place only the path; a path worth paving so that they too could learn for themselves that the path is the most important part of their lives.  Pay attention to the path and they just might get lucky. 

I may be only a small part of what I call the big picture, but a  part I am.  Trials and tribulations are part of everyone's journey.  True they are completely different from the next persons, but I ask how far your journey will take you ?  Learn from every lesson.  Grow from every struggle and one day you may be ready to surge on.  We all need explorers.   For without them, we are nothing.  How rare it is, for someone to find exactly what they are looking for.
It is with every new lesson or discovery that we not only discover a part of our self, but open a link to the next person to discover their own truth.  

I say smile in the face of adversity and remember that every challenge brings you closer to your truth.  Keep the spirit nurtured and never give in to those forces trying to hold you back from your true destiny.  Leave them all behind and find out who you really are.  Discover yourself.  There are no limits within your imagination, so don’t be afraid to let it guide you from time to time.

Learn, study, grow and prosper, but remember the imagination combined with some sort of faith regardless of what it is, be it God, Allah, Om, Wakeguru, Gitchi Manitou, the Eighth Dynamic, some other Supreme Being or force, or even our family,  can be and are all very powerful.  Combine your imagination with your faith, without prejudice, and see what can become of this world or better yet, what can become of yours.

My ship is my family and in that I have faith.  Strong, relentless, unwavering, crafty, wise, always improving and never ending.  I will stay the course and my ship will become part of tomorrow’s path and tomorrow's journey and along the way its very own discoveries.

Being of Tulip

Being of Tulip

June 19 2013

Illumination of The Heart

Tulip Light doth shine so bright today * ` ~

Much more than all the other days in the sun

Whilst all the while ` ~ `

Emotion way too grand for the tender of heart to bear

Pull my being through this state and that

O'h` ~


O'h` ~

Memory so fresh of a lover's lament

~ * ~

Many many years ago

So a`gaze I am upon the beautiful tulips

On this brilliant blue blue day



~ * ~

I saw with my very own eye

Into the brightest Tulip d`oth shine a beam of delight
Sweeping the flowers all pink purple and red

Into the wind of violet

To vibrate with time

The yellow so bright

A tango of citrus throughout leaves of lime

~`Dreamy Dance`~ is this

For first flowers of Spring

To blow dark shadow away



How sweet blowing tulip can be

In love with brightness of Light

Indeed the spell hath cast a blessing

Ode ` ~

To soothe the pain of a broken heart ~ not possible to break

~ * ~


Amid`st blowing winds that march with time

Pray then I did to Elemental Grace

To feather all bloomy essence with love joy and mirth

Should another come this way today

Deliver dear God, your glorious healing gift

~ * ~

Infuse with joy the heart full of sorrow


For all to behold your Passion Divine

And so I lay there  ~  spell bound

For who knows how long`

Full of the glorious scent of earth


A`breast a bed of Tulip touched by an azure sky

Surrender I did to the delight of hue's rapture

Amidst` all His Heavenly Light

A` drop of diaphanous white


Scent sweetened all seed



To soothe the ~ tremble ~ of a tender heart

Then there it was` ~

Palest of Blue

Blushed the sweetness of innocence

 Touched by stillness on the breath of a breeze

God's purest expression of life

Beheld I did ~ Being of Tulip

Upon this bed of soft skinned petals


With the broken of heart

~ ` Pure Sweet Love ` ~ 

O`h ~


O`h ~

Where life overflows with Bliss 


Hide & seek there awhile

There among the Tulips

A` touch of Heaven's beam unfolding in joyful delight

All within the stalks so very green with lime

O`h ~

O`h ~

Hear the call of Love’s haunting melody


  Pluck the heart of old gypsy violin 

T`would be fairest of memory

A`midst blowing field of green

Blow wind blow your gift of life so rain may fall```~

Until the Tulips beam all a`glow


Tousled bloom a`midst pale shade of pigment dream

 Listen tenderly to lutes swoon so sweet

Brilliant caress of blue night's silvery moon

Be lost to the breath of sweet scent

~ ~ ~

Palm of a new dawn

~ Nothing Compares

~ Nothing Compares

 Soft pretty petals

Whisper your lament to innocent heart so pale

Being of Tulip now ```

 Being of Tulip & dreaming of You

On this brilliant Spring day

Somewhere` very`` far``` 

far`````~*..... away
