My world dissolves into autumn,
the shade and the fire draped about my throat
like so many jewels.
I met the mist as an old lover,
let the dew paint my lips
with the scent of harvest.
In a white memory, you are still walking away,
down that same road.
Your hair was shining like the fall.
Your shape in the fog beckons;
ghost or vision, I care not.
I lose myself.

So much good stuff in here! "Let the dew paint my lips / with the scent of harvest" was particularly brilliant phrasing. Well done! :heart:

Oh well, I'm the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are well, you know that I'm around
I kiss 'em and I love 'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em they don't even know my name

They call me the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around

Oh well, there's Flo on my left and there's Mary on my right
And Janie is the girl with that I'll be with tonight
And when she asks me, which one I love the best?
I tear open my shirt I got Rosie on my chest

'Cause I'm the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around

Oh well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I'm as happy as a clown
I with my two fists of iron and I'm going nowhere

I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and ride around the world

Yeah I'm the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around

Oh yeah, I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and drive around the world

Yeah, 'cause I'm a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around

'Cause I'm a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around

'Cause I'm a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer

That seems a good atmosphere for your novel The Siren! The mists are wonderful.
Now seriously, love both the poem and the photo, perfect alliance!

Hmm. I do like the misty, mystical atmosphere, but in my head, The Siren is a bit harder and grittier. If that makes sense. xD It made sense in my head.
Thank you! I saw the photo and words just came. It's been a while since an image has done that.

I like misty weather, not always, although, because it can be depressing too. Mystical atmosphere, bring it on. I love it.
Sorry if it sounds that I was trying to put ideas in your mind, I like reading it just the way you write. It's great!
You're welcome, the picture is a beauty.
I'm wooked towards writings, pictures and other artworks; I get inspired by things all the time and I hope to continue that way, makes me feel good also.

I've lived in horrible, dry, dusty places so long, I think I could live in the rain for the rest of my life and be happy every day of it. I love going out in it, or sitting under the porch with a book and tea while it pours.

I like it too, listen the soft rain tapping on the roof and (seeing it too behind my bedroom window).
The fresh scent of grasses and the fields wetted, after a good rain.
I even like heavy rain loaded with thunder lights, that is if I am in a good shelter or at home.

Yes, definitely. I couldn't live long away from the sight of my lovely greens.
Deserts are nice to visit but not very good places to stay for one who misses water and trees.
If I were to live on a dry place or land; quickly or slowly I would wither away, become dust too... sadly I would vanish into the wind. Luckly then I'll would find seeds to mix up my remains and lay down to rest near a lake and finally be a tree.
