Philippa Lane

Ashima's Calling

Through the mysterious dark
and violent waves,
her shimmering turquoise tail
reflecting beaming colours
against the sunset on a cloudy night -

Her long, wavy, flaxen hair.
against the curves and edges
of the hollow grey sea,
with creatures as indesribable
as her, the hynotizing, melodious siren -

Beautiful Ashima...
