In storm tossed seas
a wreck of weakened limbs
toss themselves once more

through white flossed flecks
of spitting foam and wild waves
amidst gulps and gasps and clasps
that smash them into the
unforgiving rocks and sends
them swiftly on their way once more
back into the drowning affray.

In fading light
the wind turned again
clears the way to
fresh holds to grasp as hope flew
in circles of light
and fate answered a
siren call.

  1. great poem. I wrote one a while back about sirens, too. fun topic to write about – the sea, the allure, mystery and danger.

    also, thank you for voting for me for best in children’s literature over at bluebell books 🙂

  2. This has to be the best of this week’s wordle poems: everything works, language, form, assonance, and most of all meaning.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I think this has to be the best of the wordle poems this week. Everything about it works – language, form, assonance, and most of all, meaning.

  5. as is life, throws you around and you are left to fight your way through, sometimes it answers the call and sometimes not…

    I like 🙂

  6. Your language use is quite lovely as is the painting. “…and fate answered a siren call.” Love that last line 🙂

  7. I like that you wrote a classic take that could be modern [or a modern take that could be classic]. The words work well in the context you give them.
