Siren Whispers

Siren Song


Beside me


Click here for audio

Beside me

in the night

is the memory of your touch

and the sweet sound

of your heart beating

in time with mine


Beside me

as the sea crashes

against the shore

with intent

the sun sinks low

with one last fiery breath

and your arms meet

with me

in the center


Beside me

what would I have next to me

on this moonlit night

with the ocean singing the song of us

what would I want

more than you…

Distant stars

Distant stars shine brightly

Across wind swept waters

Winking in time with my heartbeat

Every gust imbued

With the briny tang of the sea

That tangles with your name

As it slips from my lips

Reminds me

IMG_1315 (1)

The sea reminds me of you.

But here

with lake water 

rushing sandy beaches

waves breaking 

violently upon the shore

I am yet again overwhelmed 

with thoughts of you.

Like sea water

gathering in tide pools

my soul fills with your essence

and I am undone

in the remembering.

I am passionate

I am passionate about many things

My children

Their intelligence, humor, laughter, kindness

Their beautiful souls


The reading, the writing

The gifting of and receiving

The sea

The smells, the sounds, the feel, the power

How it inspires, soothes, invigorates me


The pleasure I get from the endless beauty in the sky

Which lets my imagination run free


The scope, the breadth, the creativity

The sheer genius of classic buildings and façades 

Which have stood the test of time

Watercolors and pastels

Powerful mediums that affect us

Not in bold voices

But in soft whispers

Black and white photography

To me, more visually arresting than color at times

Passion and depth expressed in ways that leave the subject

Open to interpretation by the viewer


From Nocturne No. 2 by Chopin

Which touches the depths of my soul in romantic melancholy

To a Lana Del Rey song

Which makes my body move in ways

It didn’t realize it could

Slow and sweetly sensual

For my audience of one

And you

Most especially you

From the top of your head

To the tips of your toes

And all the spaces in between

I am passionate

About you

Distant skies


Let us disappear

into the distant skies.

To a land

far removed from here.

Where the sea sings to us

with every passionate wave

upon the shore

and the afternoon rain

beats softly upon the window panes.

A place where we can

get lost in the learning and knowing

as you peel away my inhibitions

along with my clothes.

My restless spirit

Ireland, June 2016

My heart will be heavy

when I leave the sea.

As I get older

the need for this renewal

is keen.

My longing 


My restless spirit

always finding its home

amid the waves.
