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!

  15. Hi Trudessa, haunting poem designed to tax ones cerebral hemispheres.
    I used to be in Tess's writing group if you remember and we met often then. Just started writing again and joined a creative writing group here in my home town. Very best wishes, Eddie :)
