A Siren Siphons Her Song

(a Triolet)

 

.

He wished farewell at salty shore,
but she’s still waiting for the wave.
All sound lost over Neptune’s roar,
he wished farewell at salty shore.
His hands are gestures, nothing more;
her heart’s an ocean wanting saved.
He wished farewell at salty shore,
but she’s still, waiting for the wave.

    Have you ever noticed that a “triolet” is only an “r” and a switcheroo away from being a “toilet”? That, of course, is unrelated to your poem. 😉

    “His hands are gestures, nothing more; her heart’s an ocean wanting saved.” I love this part.

    “still waiting for the wave”
    “still, waiting for the wave”

    You are so very clever with words. BEAUTIFULLY done.

  3. This is so sad – a sad story of miscommunication.

Use your words.
