~::~ Lonely Warrior ~::~


This time I’m combining 3 prompts, one that I created for myself! πŸ˜‰

My close friend Rajlakshmi posted her trip to the Wollongong Harbour on her photoblog – Twinkled Eyed Traveller

Somehow my muse started frolicking around for want to make that pic as an inspiration and with Sunday Whirl and Three Word Wednesdays giving me such wonderful words I just had to get it all out of my system!!

So my darling Raji, thank you for the pic and here’s the poem! (I hope I did justice to your pic)

~::~ Lonely Warrior ~::~

Β 10250326_985909228104339_4188116652871711702_n

Perched by the blue pristine waters

I sat hopeless and dismayed

Yearning for an eager soul

To tread along my lonely quay

Like the winding river

Uncut by life’s ephemera

I stand my post day and night

Guiding sea-vessels to terra firma

Β 

Cobalt sober sky as my umbrella

Delicate flowers by the harbour

Jagged stones evolving the shore

With foamy waves hitting in ardour

Β 

Cobbled pathways leading downstream

Filled with shiny round tiny pebbles

Glistening dew drops like fresh cut diamonds

Lay nestled among the grass petals

Β 

Awaiting a content soul

On dark murky nights

I stand there fierce and tall

In my white armour, a lonely knight
