Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Snow White



Snow White.

She said I reminded her of Snow White.

The dark curls

the blue eyes

and the red lips against pale skin.


Initially, I thought she was romanticising

as all new mothers are wont to do.

The newborn baby girl,

desperately wanted after the arrival of two rambunctious boys.

The utter perfection of a new life.

Somehow mere words cannot express

the beauty that is found in such an arrival.


But then she showed me

and it was as she said.

The hair, the eyes, the mouth, the skin

and the nickname stuck.


*This is not a new piece. I first posted this two years ago but I was reminded of it and it made me smile so here it is again.

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.
