Siren Whispers

Siren Song




Dreams are an escape.

They provide us a way to cope with a monotone life.

One we are indentured to.

One we have been imprisoned within

by ourselves, or by others.

But dreams are also a journey

a fantastical, adventurous trip.

A path to nowhere,

and everywhere.

We never know whether the line will be straight and true

toward the fulfilment of that dream

or if the way will be mired in confusion, loss, fear, anger, 

those times when the dream is lost.

I adore the dream.

The dream is a lifeboat

for when the seas are rough and we need something to cling to.

The dream

is the burning light upon the horizon

the glorious sunrise we awaken to each day

the focus that keeps our feet upon the path

that keeps our hearts strong.

The dream

is our gift

to ourselves.

You are…


You are the craving

that I never want to sate


You are the book

I never want to finish


You are the journey

that I never want to end

What is hidden?

There is the public face and the private one. 

Those parts of ourselves that we share


The pieces that don’t raise eyebrows

or cause fingers to be pointed.

The safe pieces.

The ones that grant us acceptance

in the world we inhabit.

And then there are the pieces that we keep hidden

sometimes even from ourselves.

Those that cause us the most confusion and consternation.

How can we describe them

explain them to others

if we cannot do so to ourselves…

It is often only when those parts

we have so cleverly hidden

have been recognised by another

that we begin to understand our own depth

we accept the journey that we are on

and we embrace our future.

Escape can be temporary.

Like a holiday

or losing oneself

in the pages of a good book.

I wanted to escape with you.

In my mind.

In my soul.

Not a temporary escape

but flight that would take me

where I had never been before.

That would release me

from the chains I’d bound myself in.

My hand in yours

as I ventured into the unknown

senses alive with possibility.

Heart pounding.

Pulse fluttering.

Not because of the destination

but because of the journey.

With you.

Thank You


A heartfelt thank you.

To all that follow this blog which, for me, is a new journey. An adventure into the unknown. 

To all that comment on my jumble of words.

Without your comments I would never know if my words meant anything to anyone but myself. It truly is a pleasure to read them all. 

Your comments make me smile, laugh and think. They make me want to make sure that whenever you click on this link, that it is worth reading. 

So thank you once again for joining me on this journey.
