Once upon a time in a land beneath the sea

their lived a young, fierce mermaid who wanted to be free

now she enjoyed all the mysteries and treasures of the water

but she new she would never be free as Poisedon’s daughter

the other merfolk were content to paint seashells along the ocean floor

but she was growing restless,  she dreamed of doing more

so while everyone was sleeping in the darkest of the night

she  straddled her trusty seahorse and together they took flight

you see she was not bound by the rules of Mer or Men

she knew she could do anything if she only looked within

  1. You KNOW I love it:) How wonderful…she escaped to live her own way. Perfect.

  2. Excellent style and structure – your poem works wonderfully!

    How true and mystical, we have to connect to the depth of ourselves to conquer the vast universe outside. And then again perhaps the separation of our inside and outside is just an illusion. We are both the spark and all the creation simultaneously…………………………………………………………….

    The power of your expressions are so wordifully inspiring. What are you doing sitting there in your room in Florida/ Saddle your agent with your message all across the skys of the universe!

  4. I love mermaids – the idea of them anyway! 😀 This little story sounds autobiographical, and some good advice in there too. I do believe anything is possible if you believe you can! 🙂

  5. Love it!! I missed that prompt, dang! LOL

    To my deep regret
