Siren Whispers

Siren Song




Hope is a luminary 

she sets alight

frees into the night air

watching the light as it travels

following its path

believing in its brightness

finding the unexpected storm

that blows the flame out

in a single burst

casting her into darkness

leaving her to search

for that flicker

the hope that she had

a purity of faith

that would right her perspective

that would calm her soul

that would make her remember

and believe

that there is good that happens

after all

Speaking eloquently


I watch and I breathe, taking you in

A study of line and shadow

Piercing darkness with light

To find hidden

The most vulnerable parts

That speak eloquently to my own

And which I choose to hold gently, delicately

Within my hands

My breath soft, quiet

This aching stillness

Just the beginning


*Written yesterday (6/9/18) as I enjoyed the solitude of a flight alone, my mind feverish with words.

Bend of memory

Advancing moments steal hours

As memorable touch lingers in thought

A soft burn

That flickers

And flames

Darkness pervades

But light is caught

And kept

In the bend

Of his memory

It is a light sought

Seen at a distance

Reflecting off the Fresnel lens

Shining clearly


Corner to corner

East to West

North to South

Sharp and true

A beacon in a tempest

A brilliant warmth in a whisper

To lead me through shallow shoals

Away from rocks

And that which would decimate me

Into deep waters

And safety

In the unknown

The light I seek

Is within me

Come closer


Come closer

Find me

Light having been leavened

Where darkness had abruptly fallen

A path cleared

On two fronts


Come closer

Find me

Upon the path this maze of words you’ve created

Has left me

Adorned with memories

Dressed with your signature

Formed with touchstones

You know I will recognise


Come closer

Find me

See my words

Hear my voice

Come closer

And touch me

In all the ways

That we know

That we’ve shared

That we adore

Her mind is like a mountain…

Her mind is like a mountain

One you are interested in scaling

Initially the climb seems easy

Straightforward with minimal difficulty

You see what you get

But as you get to know her

You realize

That this is no ordinary climb

There are challenges as you go higher

Things become more complex

There are layers where you did not expect them

But while the climb is not easy

It is worthwhile

Because when you reach the top

When you have taken the time

Listening and learning

The views are magnificent

And the air is untouched and pure

So breathe deeply of her

She’ll sink into your soul

And show you the beauty found

In her light


*This is a re blog from last year. Companion to my series of ‘She is’ posts.

“She gave me eyes, she gave me ears;

And humble cares, and delicate fears;

A heart, the fountain of sweet tears;

And love and thought and joy.”

Dark Paradise


The dark paradise 

Of my thoughts

Where it is 

Just us two

My light showing

The depth and breadth

Of your dark

And of all the subtle values

And tones within

That make it so beautiful

Angel and Devil


Light and dark

Angel and devil

The combination of the two

Increases the desire

A fire

Gathering strength

A lingering hunger

Is what remains
