Neptunes Mermaid Meditation


Neptunes Mermaid Meditation

With sceptre in hand – crowned—underwater enthroned
King Neptune absorbed as aquatic muses reflect the moonstone
Mysterious, mischievous—long meridian tresses entice
Mother-of- pearl, fish-tailed multi-formed, misty vice

Mythological, enchanting underwater innocence disguised
Benevolent, bestowing beneficial misadventure, compromised
Perilous floods, storms and shipwrecks- drowning of lovers
Their musical murmurs mesmerize- as murky moisture covers

Odyssey - mistakable striking attractive form- femme fatale
Captivating voices beckoning sailors, mirrors and combs- lure and impale
Neptune meditates in his Mediterranean splendour
Holding court, entertained, in Oceans depths—ultimately to surrender

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
