"This is the Sea" by Rustum Kozain

(After a photograph by Victor Dlamini)

There is that sea, as deep sometimes
as the heart at dusk,
the shine on its face soon to fade.
There is that caravel drifting in
and all it brings: a load of good
and bad unreckoned by the quartermaster.

The homing birds that come or go.
The sun is done,
now only a shade smudged by fog.
From empty rooms...

Very nice poetry. It captures the picture atmosphere perfectly.
