Williamstown Night

Fireballs on the harbour,
electric, neon light,
laughter floating on a breeze –
seductive voice of the Williamstown night.
Each flame a lifetime’s story;
a kaleidoscope of dreams
of lovers and stolen kisses,
beggars, kings and queens.

A yacht sways on the ocean;
freedom opens her eyes.
Seconds linger infinitely;
the moment comes alive.
Knowing eyes speak wisdom
and hint at the joy of living
the free life of the daring
and of a need so carefully hidden.

  1. A thrilling night! A beautiful weave of metaphors and personifications. I love the freedom being personified here. Genius you are! I would love to hear you read this 😀
