Water Sprite

Goddess of the blue…..
    you can see her
on a silver drenched 
      moonlit night
Stretched across the sand
   gazing the distance
and waiting on him....

      She is a nymph 
a wanton maiden of the sea
as it crashes her restless soul
and makes her desperate 
to lay as only God intended
        upon the shore
and feel the salt sting her face

her dark orbs are haunted
her warm tanned body is damp
she is like verdant green 
and smoking sapphire

she whispers a silent beckon 
to the blue….
              the endless eternal
that reckless aquamarine that tempts
that provocatively motions her
to tumble back into this deep abyss
and sail the ship of demise’s dark eyes
that many an ocean dweller has fallen to

A goddess of foam
arising from the water
to birth and to knowing

in her eyes lay the universe
        and in her hands
          lay the hearts
     She has loved and lost
and some she may have broken

her wild hair is tousled 
     a little unkempt 
while her body is nubile 
whispering of temptation

how she loves the play
the freedom and the wind
the ponder on universal things 
and that man that taunts her soul

yes, she is eternal searching
naked in the full moon light
     for her souls companion
        and when he comes
       she will dance for him
          arms raised high
      fixed on his Adonis body
     and his mysterious eyes
that capture her in infinite bondage

Goddess of the blue
       you can see her
             upon the sand 
                 on a moonlit night
                          waiting on him…..

    Outstanding. I think that everyone, whether he or she admits it or not, writes some that are clearly a cut above the others. That is how we differentiate quality. That is how we know the best from the rest. This is one of those. I envy you this piece. Regards, Gerard.

    Did you that this is Oshun, the river goddess, the orisha from the culture of animism. Did you she is most beautiful to men, most desirable in dance, most vengeful when her family is threatened. She has been fragmented in many myths, but your poem gives peace. Love always
