mermaid 2


This is burning life,
This sea.
This blowing wind that whites the world
With foam and icy breath,
Tumbling the sea into a rumpled bed
Upon which ships of myth and legend sail.
Sail or sink
Beneath the green covers,
Lulling themselves to sleep
With the sound of mermaids singing.

  1. Again, thank you so much for your comment. I wanted the reader to feel the coldness of the water
    and to catch a glimpse of what lies under the fury.
