She meanders below the blue
Searching beds for treasure
Shiny bits of magic
Dreams of glistening drops
Reflected by the light of sunshine.
She listens to the hush
The underworld of oceans
Rocking motion moves her
Back and forth
Her path of waves in wind.
She looks above in strength
Knowing where she needs to go,
Surfacing to the air that fills
Her soul with warmth untold.
Ships pass unaware
As she watches him move above
His slow easy motion she senses
His energy quiet and strong
He gazes out into the distance
Feeling a gaze of eyes burning bright
Smiling she moves so close
Her mosaic world of hues of water
His wooden vessel skimming her path
He knows there’s something out there
Waiting and unseen,
He lifts his hand to the wind that blows
And she knows this is indeed
She rises up into the light of sunshine,
As time stands still he smiles gently
And she knows this is her way
Thinking of mermaids and sunshine for my dear muse Kat. Always one to inspire stories and thoughts of the sea and the sunshine we rise to greet with each morning we awaken.
