Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Writing true



Sometimes writing is like slipping

off your clothes

in the waning light of day


exhalation on a sigh

but most often it is retching

in solitude

a heaving up of your insides

results that are never pretty

generally painful

but necessary



 until all that bubbles up


is expelled

finding purchase

upon the page

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. I like the slow sensual start, the days when verses can slip from the tongue as easy as a dress from the body. Then the reflective and the reality of some days when it all becomes a struggle, but then writing can be like that. I guess that I like to play with different topics because that helps stop me from getting bogged down. I always quote a story of Dylan Thomas to frustrated writers:
    There is a story that Dylan Thomas, after spending a day at his typewriter, emerged to announce triumphantly to friends in the pub ‘I have completed three lines today!’
