Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Of snow and ice


The sun dazzles, skipping

across the snow

windows frosted with ice

crystals, a frame for my eyes

the news blares of frozen doom

we remain bundled

furnace blasting

safety indoors

shadow of heat and smoke

from the chimney

dancing over unbroken snow

silent, bare trees

sentries immovable in the warmth

the sun, a pittance

a car travels down the street


the crunch of packed snow

breaking the silence, paralyzed

by the cold

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.

  1. you come so close to making deep winter appealing.
    this is wonderful stuff (as ever), especially “sentries immovable in the warmth.”
    Great job.
