why there are mermaids

She lolls there surely

glimmering

azure sea

on the inside

lapping at the blurring

edges of our souls’ hungry tide.

She calls there

alluring

crystalline tones

reminding us enchanted

what hearts’ wisdom already knows.

We paint the mesmerizing mermaid there, afar

but nigh enough

longingly gazing

hope hoping

enamored

she will open us

to the vastness of what we are

possibility’s fierce stars

inimitable

amazing

  1. Is it coincidence I found a really lovely picture of a mermaid yesterday and thought…hmmm that could be good.
    What a beautiful poem. It’s given me so many ideas, I hope you don’t mind.
    Thank you, I really needed some alternate inspiration
