A Voyage To Unknown

This week Pegman takes us to Portsmouth in Hampshire, UK. This location was suggested by the talented Kelvin M Knight. Be sure to check out Kelvin’s blog where you’ll find articles, flash fiction and short stories. Also check out his author page on Amazon where you can pick up copies of his short story collections. Thanks for the great suggestion, Kelvin!

The Pegman challenge is simple. All you need to do is write up to 150 words inspired by the location–be it poetry, prose, or essay. You can use the exact location provided above, or take your own tour of Portsmouth using Google Maps. Once your piece is polished, share it with others at the linkup below. Reading and commenting is part of the fun!

A Voyage To Unknown

I walked alone on the deserted port,

I missed your voice and laughs beside my side;

In and out came the tides,

Sweeping in memories.

You are gone, I don’t know where;

You have taken half the sphere,

that I call ‘My world’.

I remember all those rubbish theories

You told about love.

It’s not there, I tell myself, it never had been.

The sea water gleams,

By sunlight beside the ship.

I must go, I tell myself,

to a voyage far away,

to a voyage to unknown.

  1. I felt like the words really seamlessly matched the photo and I could imagine the stroll…
    while emotions flooded
    and this was my favorite line:

    In and out came the tides,

    Sweeping in memories.

      1. thanks – and I like your writing so it is my pleasure to read (and I mean that)
        also – I do not always mean to point out lines I like – hope it doesn’t become rote –
        but those two lines did speak to me.
        and not sure if you read my pegman piece for this week –
        but one of my own lines stood out to me –
        and hope it is not cheesy to say…
        but it was
        “envy was in the breeze”
        later that line stood with me because cdid you ever get around competitive people and feel the yuck – ??
