in the whitecaps

    g'day Bruce,

    Nice job. Brought to my mind Rudyard Kipling's CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS. (I'm not suggesting there was any influence.)

    I love this – the use of 'bluster' and 'whitecaps' is great.

    I enjoyed the poem…
    A great movie too with Spencer Tracy, Freddy Bartholomew, Lionel Barrymore, Melvin Douglas, Mickey Rooney, and John Carradine:

    approaching storm
    the boatman fingers the bowl

    In Memory of John Carradine
