Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Gilded cage



It was a gilded cage

not of her design.

For years she sang a song


Hoping its beauty would touch his heart, his soul.

That he would find her and see her

and love her as she was.

But over time her voice quieted.

The words, the melody

important only to her.

The days lengthened

and she found herself in the shadow of night.

Reflecting and understanding.

Her soul had its own awakening.

She kept the song to herself

knowing it was precious and beautiful

and worthy to be heard.

Resolving to sing again

when her life was unlocked

and she was free.

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.
