Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Journey in ink



My journey began with a single word

spoken to me

Unknowing at the time

a wellspring of verse

bubbled away under my skin

waiting for inspiration

waiting for him

It took hold one moonlit night

Thoughts that took me miles away

to a man

and his own thoughts

and to two flames that burned

Ablaze with a hunger previously restrained

the pages of my soul were on fire

The words that spilled forth that day

blood from my veins

a testament to my feelings, my awareness

of him, of myself

and of an unexplored question

whose answers took root

and have flourished

in my soul

and in my ink

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.
