The dreamery inshore. An ephrastic poem by Paweł Markiewicz

The dreamery inshore 
 A  dreamed  ship has gone aground
 at the most marvelous and dreamiest afterglow.
 The mast adverts to orientation of
 a tender Morning star.
 Seafarers died at midnight
 feeling the sea-like fantasy.
 The wind wrenched a canvas,
 such a Golden Fleece,
 to the piratical islands.
 The sea is waving in
 the rhythm of siren-like
 Terpsichorean art.
 On the sandbank 
 a letter in bottle lies with
 a sonnet to king Poseidon,
 written by a dead sailor.
 A rock inshore - like
 a custodian of the eternity
 is waiting for Apollonian dreams.
 A cloud is as If it came from
 the meek paradise-heaven,
 it manifests a weird-like seriousness
 of the moments.
