Mariner’s Muse

A ship that was lost and considered a mariner’s tale, returns to haunt the coast where it was last seen.

The ghost ship becomes a symbol of betrayal, guilt, vengeance or unfulfilled promise as it keeps returning to its home. This goes into the themes of atonement, the persistence of memory, being haunted by the past, and the power of folklore and legend. This balance of a supernatural ship and deep human emotion can provide a very compelling story.
