    It always fascinates me - the triggers that trip the creative inspiration - and what a powerful trigger your lighthouse proves to be in this fine poem, evoking as it does such a powerful emotional and dramatic response. Your work has great authority, Fay and the images you convey with style and originality (like the 'mighty white finger') demand a second reading. Mystery pervades the piece and a sense of grace and humility too. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Lighthouses light ones inspirations, they say so much in so many ways. Strength, power, solitude, regal, stalwart, silent and calm. Lovely poem that speaks of a lonely life in the middle of the forces of nature.

    She stands alone, all painted white,
    a warning for ships that pass at night
    with slender shape, in jeweled height
    in darkest hours, burns so bright (Report) Reply

    Fay, there is an allure with lighthouses because of their isolation. I sometimes think I would like to live in one, but on second thoughts I like the company of people. at time. A wonderful pictorial picture you have drawn here. Top marks and thanks for sharing it with us.

    'The trip round the lighthouse
    ........................................ ended instead
    In light mist,
    ..................... but I knew I must go again
    And discover more
    ................................of this secret terrain..'
    A mesmerising trip you experienced, Fay, and expressed it poetically with such a wonderful imagery to invade a reader. Thanks for sharing with us.
