Stormy Night - Haunting Songs



Siren














Aye, her light shines guiding sailors home
shadowy figures, weary pirates roam
out of the darkness, a schooner sails
creaky floorboards,  eerie wails
on a moonless night she's our sun
her glowing kiss, forgives what we've done
riding waves to the siren's haunting song

written for dVerse 
writing Quadrille #43
a poem consisting of 44 words
incorporating the word creak

Thank you for your kind visit!

Autumn Rain, Weeping Refrains

free images













I'm feelin'  in a blue sort of mood
this heart of mine has come unglued
raindrops slippin' down windowpanes
listenin' to songs, weeping refrains
some days you just need solitude
I'm feelin' in a blue sort of mood
dreamin' of a romantic interlude
raindrops slippin' down windowpanes
listenin' to songs, weeping refrains

some days you just feel the rain
some days you just feel the rain
some days you just feel the rain
some days you just feel the pain

I'm feelin' in a blue sort of mood
falling leaves, winter's prelude
raindrops slippin' down windowpanes
listenin' to songs, weeping refrains

some days you just need solitude

I'm feelin' in a blue sort of mood
autumn's splendor seems subdued
raindrops slippin' down windowpanes
listenin' to songs, weeping refrains

some days you just feel the rain
some days you just feel the pain
some days you just feel the pain
some days you just feel the pain

With a Sword, Carve These Words

Three simple words to guide you in  times of darkness

Faith
  It is believing, without any proof

   Love
     It is a force of nature, it comes with
     no personal agenda, it simply radiates

      Hope
        It is the desire that our dreams
        will be full-filled

sharing with dVerse
writing a quadrille with 44 words
incorporating the word "hope"

author's note: I pondered hope and
these 3 words came to mind. I
try to carry them in my heart, but
sometimes the load is heavy.

Fisherman's Tale

Untitled
by Thomas Eakins (1910)
Fair Use

 They gathered with nets on the shoreline
on a dark rainy day, searching for a sign

it was rumored that s ship of dreams sailed
carrying treasures beyond the mystic veil

cold and hungry they cast out their heavy nets
through the fog, formed ghostly silhouettes

echoes of deep regrets, ballad of lost souls
who among you, will hear the last bell toll

with humble hearts, working side by side
hidden full moon, pulling hope with the tide

it is said their nets were bountiful with fish
and the ship of dreams full- filled their wish

perhaps, this is an old fisherman's tale
for all we know it could have been a whale
