Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Clouds gathered



The end of summer

Came before summer’s end

As clouds gathered

Beneath his brow

A tempest formed within

The sun sought refuge

With the moon

Hiding its face

Its warmth

The shadow it left

Lengthening across the miles

The deep blue sea

Becoming belligerent

Turning on her

Without mercy

Its waves


Washing over her

Heedless of its own

Mindless brutality

Drowning her voice

Relegating her

To its cold, dark depths

Where silence

Is all that she hears

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.
