“She talks as she sails, the old wooden boat -- of oyster days, and summer bays, and watermen grown old.”
M. Kei, Take Five: Best Contemporary Tanka, Volume 4

“Closer and closer they came. The sight was a glorious one: two vessels racing towards each other as the sun lifted above the rim of the world.”
M. Kei, The Sallee Rovers

“The Spanish fleet was beautiful and terrifying. The great battleships were clouds of sail scudding before the wind while their xebecs and frigates ran with them like greyhounds coursing alongside huntsmen.”
M. Kei, Iron Men
