MUTTERINGS OF A SENSELESS SOUL

The mystical allure Of an island in the sun Embraced by deepest waters Of sparkling sapphire blue A tranquil sanctum A secret retreat A calling from within Where one day two sweet lovers meet And on this Isle their hearts entwined Where promises and vows were made A love eternal A love divine A love that stood the test of time Now all alone I live here still Known as the loner on the hill For one night many years ago A storm it raged and roared below My darling he was swept away How I survived I’ll never know And now each night I hear him call In poignant guise of whale songs Pitiful songs A haunting refrain Of love long gone As they call out his name For now I am ancient All withered and frail The only words muttered Incomprehensible now These mutterings of a senseless soul Professing her deepest love Driven to distraction Oh so many years ago For tonight she's truly ready It is now her time to go So making her way down Over perilous rocks below He will surely come to greet Her loving heart doth tell her so She hears his songs of love From so many years ago The sea it gently takes her Wrapped within its sparkling waves Tentatively transporting her Deep down into her watery grave Now every night their songs of love Enchant and mesmerise the Isle Two lovers dance forevermore To songs of whales Sweet songs of love Written 21st February 2020 Contest Strand Select X Sponsor Brian Strand HONORABLE MENTION

Thanks Tom, a little different for me, but I awoke with these images in my head, so needed to express them before they disappeared. Hope all is well with you and your family. With kindest thoughts Ann xx
