The smokey breath of Poseidon,
Billowing over wintered wings.
Gracefully touched by ice maidens,
Silent thoughts magically sing.

The mother's crystalline wine,
Flows over verdant isles.
Glimmering like an ancient shrine,
A mirror expanding endless miles.

A melody floats upon the tides,
Lingering within cool sprays.
Upon creamy foam the tune rides,
And silver notes gently raise.

Sweetened with an aqua hue,
The mermaid song plays on.
Secrets of the depths are viewed,
Unlocked by the coming dawn.

A symphony soars within the light,
Sea nymph voices floating high.
Within the sound I hear her might,
Echoing where ocean meets sky.

The crystal opera begins to fade,
Becoming now a hymn of the sea.
Memories fall in a final cascade,
Reminding that the song shall always be.




 *Krista Knutson*

A most beautiful piece Krista!  I hung on every word, every piece of imagery.  I loved the last verse especially.  You know how much I love water, this piece really hits home with me.  If I had one word it'd be masterful.  

 In flames I shall not be consumed, but reborn.

I don't know what to say to this poem, but I had to respond...some of my favourite poets are the Romantics, esp. Shelley and Keats. You are a worthy successor to them.
I'd love to hear this read out loud, the sound seems like the swell and fall of the sea itself!
I am envious!

Alwye -

What a beautiful poem to begin
my day.  Lovely ... just lovely.

*sighs whimsically* Wonderful! Think i'm gonna have to read it again...

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

Wow, thank you all so much!  Hey, ya know what?  I've never even laid eyes on the ocean..I hope to someday though.  Thanks for your kindness.
