She waits on frozen shores
Winter cuts her to the bone
Time to escape to find warm sunny rays,
Mermaid muses on cloudy days.
Swimming into the frigid depths
Finding the surface where the sun waits smiling
She feels the ice melt from her veins
Home again on white sand shores.
Songs of summer remembered
The sights and sounds of days of heat
Rippled air of oasis awaits
She sets her hair free to fade
On a piece of salty land
Her hands dip into the deep warm sand
And she scatters shells like diamond dust
At ease in her place
By the distant sea.
She sings a song of peace and joy
Of cold hard places she lets those fall away,
And beckons those to join her here
Embracing the beauty of her place of blue
Sparkling waves under a winter orb,
Of sand and sun
And the white glistening moon,
To sit a spell and watch the tide
Moving her from side to side,
Drifting into the ocean of bliss.
