mermaid’s mooring

swimming my solitary seas


for wonder’s enchantment


for shackled souls’ release

where are you my island

my comfort, my peace?

swimming my voracious seas alluring

wandering azure


I grow weary of a lonely destiny

haunting the unanchored chill


yet undaunted still

let me now wash onto your nestling shores

let me pause, let me moor

on the gentle promontory of your lover’s heart

warm these star-tossed scales

still the tempest tail

fishbone comb seaweed studded hair

and dream my eyes on jeweled waves there

as we gently float

on and on horizons’ operatic notes

I with you my island

    Perfecto! The sea…a perfect place to get away. I do have this dream at times, where I belong to the sea, rising each morning to marvel at its vast liquid beauty. Today, you awaken this appetite. And I’m grateful for the beauty of your words. enchanting.

    Do you happen to know the music band Coldplay? Your poem reminded me of one of their tracks entitled ‘Swallowed in The Sea.’

      Oh, so pleased that I have whet your appetite for the sea-that is high praise, my friend. So grateful for your kind words. And I am honored by any association with Coldplay-thank you! I was not as familiar with the song you mentioned, so I just listened to it again and am thrilled that my poem reminded you of that lovely song. May the sweet sea breeze blow fragrantly across your path, Uzoma.
