The Nymph With A Siren’s Song
Moonlight dances on stilled waters
gracefully covering mossy shores.
Trees watch in stoic silence,
Like Statues guarding Nature’s Secrets.
Footsteps break the calming night,
Approaching the clear lake in awe.
In ethereal beauty, she stands barefoot,
A nymph whose wings glitter brighter than stars.
Her emerald eyes shimmer with promise
A siren’s voice sounds in the distance.
Light as air, she moves upon the water,
Finding her place in the night’s music.
Patterns form on the surface around her,
Chaotic and Beautiful under the Moon’s gaze.
Wings flutter in softened shadows
Lifting the nymph higher just to free fall.
The space is filled by her glowing prescence
Though she vanishes amongst the trees
Like an unformed thought is swallowed by the mind.
Removed from sight, the fireflies fade away,
A closing curtain on something unseen
And yet I know it was more than a dream.
Ruins Lie Waiting For Us All
She dances in circles
An ivory dress hangs on her
Twirling about her legs
While she swirls.
The cobblestone is cold
Sleek on her bare feet
And she spins again
In the shadows of ruins.
Thunder sounds in the distance
A flash of white light
Through the cracks.
Freezing in place
She looks to the heavens
A pale hand stretched above her
And the wind surrounds her fiercely.
Closing her eyes
She breaths softly
Rain falls from the darkness
A drop, a drip, a dribble
It crashes into her palm
And she tightens her hold.
Pulling it to her heart
A smile tugs at her lips
And she leaps toward the sky
Shown through a decimated home
Only to fall back to the earth.
The true dance begins
With the inner storm
She summoned into existence.
And still a smile remains on her rose coloured lips…
