I've recorded the following improvisation, and I like it so much that I wanted to share it with you. :)

I tried to play a piece that constnatly changes as if it were on a journey. Like you are on a ferry where the scenery around you constantly changes.

Hah.  I felt like that piece ended more sinisterly than it was meant to.  Does this happen to be the ferry across Styx?

Still, not bad at all for an improvisation.  Definitely better than what I could'a done.
Things to remember when writing figures of speech and sound:
The power of poetry comes from the ability to defy logic. Defy logic often.

Use a metaphor and tell us that your lover is the sky. Tell us that your lover is the sky. When you do that, we won't believe you. We won't believe you because saying so makes no sense, but we'll see a meaning. We'll see a meaning.

The other thing is the ability to be remembered. Love anything.

Love anything

Its not a particular ferry actually. I just thought it somehow would be fitting to use this title. :) Its more like a metaphore.

Also thanks for the nice words :)

The ending I kinda was like: oh wow, this sounds really good, and then I lost the moment :P

Lovely. The idea of the ferry on a journey adds a lot to the piece  :)
Sort of felt like reading a book, I wonder what kinds of scenes other people imagine when they hear this!

also: it made me think of the game 'To The Moon', but every piano does that to me these days..

Ferry good! Ferry good indeed!

The title does (positively) affect how I interpret the piece.
