That siren song …

The song of the sea,

that siren song ..

air of enchantress sorcery.

Waves which pound

from fathoms deep in

plangent echoes of sea-witch sound

lapping the shores of sleep ..

The song of the sea,

air of maritime mystery

swirling in seaweed

borne on the tide ..

that siren call

from blue oceans wide

keeping my soul in thrall … .

    Perfect picture to go with a mesmerising poem. You know so well to capture the ambience in such few words.

    Thank you so much .. it is one of my favourite places .. the site of my avatar picture. I call the small island, ‘Siren rock’. It lures me there at all times of the year .. when the sea is turquoise and jade in the Spring and Summer or when steel grey waves sweep shoreward in the Autumn and Winter.
    It’s a surfer’s paradise .. great rollers curving along the perfect sandy beach ..
