This time I’m combining 3 prompts, one that I created for myself! 😉
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 ~::~
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
Cobalt sober sky as my umbrella
Delicate flowers by the harbour
Jagged stones evolving the shore
With foamy waves hitting in ardour
Cobbled pathways leading downstream
Filled with shiny round tiny pebbles
Glistening dew drops like fresh cut diamonds
Lay nestled among the grass petals
Awaiting a content soul
On dark murky nights
I stand there fierce and tall
In my white armour, a lonely knight

There is a sense of mystery in this piece … the story of lonely knight … I loved it 🙂
haha!I’m glad you see mystery, cos all I was trying to do was think from a Lighthouse’s perspective 😛
Let’s hope the knight in white soon meets someone in red, and be splashed with the magical colour of love. Awesome thoughts, and a captivating post!
haha!! i wonder how the Lighthouse feels about meeting a Red Miss 😉 😀 thanks for dropping by and your wonderful comments on the poem!
