The Naked Mermaid

Found on the beach

Circled with stardust

And a spark in her blood radiating from her eyes

 

They gathered around her

The naked mermaid

In silence and awe

Hands on mouths,

“Where did she come from?”

Whispering

“The lost city of Atlantis, perhaps”

 

With golden eyes, she blinked

To all the men and women

Slowly disappearing within the wave

Leaving her stardust behind

And the men and women

In silence and awe

Hands on mouths

Yearning the naked mermaid

Once again
