Portrait of an Airship Captain

Grown and gray
in top hat and tails,
proud in a steampunk style
of burnished buttons and crushed velvet,
he dances with a dirigible--
lost in the romance
of cogs and gears,
machine oil and old lace.

Inspired by: Poet Share 9/21/13, Number Ten

Very nice Queen of Brevity! Lol! Looks like linking is back to normal so let me know if anything goes bump in the night. Your first line is Brown and gray I presume? See you at MM my friend!

I aims to please... ;) And no, my first line is not Brown and gray... it is Grown and gray... as in a fully grown man gone gray. I'll check out MM tomorrow morning...
