Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #268 #Tradition and ceremony

Imagine a warship tied up alongside

it’s movement governed by the tide

at nine in the morning every day

the ship’s bell rings twice in a solemn way

but thirty-first of December at midnight you hear

it rung sixteen times to welcome in the New Year

  1. I miss hearing the ships’ blasts we used to get to welcome in the New Year. Too few ships in port these days, and to cap it, I no longer live close to the quay
