underwater dreaming

she floats just beneath the ocean’s waves
her brown hair spread like a scallop seashell.
her gaze, fixed on the profile of a white sun
that disturbed the surrounding blue-green waters
with flecks of white light, surrendered
to a warmth that blanketed her face.
unaware of what lies above,
she lifts her hand and breaks the ocean
feels the sun’s kiss–an eruption of heat
that envelops her hand.

the mermaid said
she discovered peace.

  1. Yet again, I feel spellbound after reading it! I hope I am able to do justice to it by getting what you intended. The mermaid discovered peace by coming out of her comfort zone and journeying into the unknown, by overcoming its fear. Inspiring and lovely. 🙂

      • I love the ocean too and dream about it quite a lot! Even though I haven’t been there in a long while. I want to visit it sometime in the next few months though–it’s an eight hour ride by bus from our city but I’m hoping to make it happen. Fingers crossed.

      • Wow, it is certainly a long drive for you! But I’m sure it will be worth it to go take a look, especially if you haven’t before. It will also make an interesting blog post! 😉
