Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Bruised sky



This bruised sky

is full of aching and melancholy.

There is electricity in the air

and a distant rumble of approaching thunder.

I wait

anticipating the sky’s torrent of release.

Eager to feel it’s cool kiss

and the sting as it hurtles to the ground

my skin bearing witness to it’s violence

as I am soaked to the bone.


that despite the bite of cold in the air

no matter the flood of water

descending from the sky

that the burning tides

I find myself swimming through


and will not

be extinguished.

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.
