Siren Whispers

Siren Song

This Wistfulness



How do I cure this wistfulness I have.

This desire to be by the sea.

Whenever I see a picture

Or read about it

There rages within myself

A deep need

To be there

Right then.

As though being there

Will make everything all right in my little world.

Perhaps because I believe that it does

In some tiny way.

It settles me

It buoys my spirits

But most of all

It reminds me of how small I really am

And that while my needs, wants, and desires

Are important

In the scheme of things

I am one miniscule drop of water

In an endless sea.

So I take what comfort I can get

My small pleasure in nature.

I smell the salt air

Letting it fill my nostrils with the briny texture

Of the deep.

I let the wind whip through my hair

Making me look wild and untamed.

I hear the pounding of the surf

Reminding me that it is violent in its pursuit of land

But as it recedes

Its touch is gentle as a lover’s caress.

I let my senses take in all the gifts of the sea

And it makes it all right again.

My mind focuses.

My soul breathes.

And I let go…

I created this blog as a way to express myself using my poetry and photography. It is a reflection of who I am and of the things that interest me. I have many muses…perhaps the greatest one being my love of the sea, how I gravitate to anything relating to water, how I feel a pull toward it deep in my bones. At times I will be revisiting content that I have shared on Twitter which has, until now, been the forum I have expressed myself in. That said, the content will change over time as the blog grows and develops. It is my hope that the reader will enjoy the journey.
