Siren Whispers

Siren Song




Like a wave born of a swell

another year is upon us, racing

to the shore

pulling the remnants of the previous year

away to memory

we bid farewell to the old year

a time of growth


joy and loss

a new year beckons

with the promise a new day brings

tides turning

presenting new opportunities

possibilities to grasp 

with both hands

before they slip away

with the tides…

Counting down


It starts as a quiet whisper

blanketing days and nights

in the soft glow of promise.

A gentle, inquiring touch

that, as time passes,

becomes crashing heartbeats

thunder on a silent day,

or the sound of a ticking clock

in a hushed room

counting down every click

of the minute hand

bringing hands and hearts closer

as possibility becomes reality.

Lissome thoughts

Lissome thoughts

I hold within my hands

Shape and depth


further touch

Reflections that evoke

something familiar

yet still unknown

and give voice

to inestimable possibility

Bearing the weight


Not undertaken lightly

she knows the risk to her heart

to give so much of herself away

to trust implicitly

to let go and immerse herself in another.

But it is the undeniable pull

the lure of this siren song

from deep within her

that found meaning

with words spoken from his lips.

In uncovering herself

she has laid her soul bare

vulnerable to wounding

but open to the myriad of possibility

that she can now see upon her horizon.

She reflects daily on her path

and always finds herself at the beginning.

Saying yes

to him.

Seed of promise



Within her garden of words

she cultivated the possibility

of more

of them.

Planting a seed of promise

within his walls

she watched as blooms formed

against the odds.

Her imagination soared with memories

and yearning thoughts of him

leaving her quivering in anticipation

of his touch

upon the soft petals

of her soul.

Each picture is an offering


She sees further than the image in front of her lens

She sees possibility

She sees beauty

She sees desire

But mainly

When she peers through the lens of her camera

She sees him

His eyes

Watching her

His smile

In delight

Each picture is an offering.
