Virgin Mermaid Undertones, Portrait Poems - Poem by Captain Cur

Charmed by sea beds peaceful dive;
iridium skin, moist wishful eyes,
storm above deep calm below
virgin mermaid undertones.

Burnt orange tresses jealous red;
shells, sea flowers coif her head,
translucent dorsal rolling fins
tail thrusts sideways thrilling spins.

Breaking water turquoise hues,
burnished headband diamond jewels
draped in purple sunsets rest
half exposing sea sculpted breasts.

    Graphic description, by harmonic, melodic, or rhythmic means, of the words of a text or the story elements in program music is called word-painting...and the word-class substitutes the colors to paint the portrait here...
    it really IS a portrait poem...
