A Siren's Serenade

The sun is slowly fading and it’s almost twilight time.
The ocean’s strong vibration beckons me to rise from deep.
The ship announces its approach, its horn an ocean chime. 
Waking me from slumber in the ocean where I sleep.

I move with lightning speed emerging quickly to the top. 
The sailors all come out to hear my haunting siren’s song.
I swim around the vessel as it slows and then it stops. 
From that time, and forever, to me they all belong.

My lovely iridescent tail will sparkle in the night.
I serenade them with my tune while diving in and out.
A potpourri of colors that will dazzle and delight. 
Before too long they will be lost inside my spell, no doubt.

I’ll circle all around the ship and mesmerize each one.
Then slowly hypnotize each man until the morning sun.

    Did you know this could be a sonnet? Modern Sonnets do use this end rhyme pattern [aabb][ccdd][eeff] [gg].. you would just leave off your last 2 lines which really aren't needed for the story. If you wanted to enter the sonnet contest you would just rearrange the lines to read [abab][cdcd][efef][gg] Thanks for the sweet commnet on my verse..I do hope you try the sonnet form..you seem a natural for it! Light & Love

    Hi Debbie, Thank you so much for your comment. I hadn't really thought about it but now that you mention it, I see what you mean. I may try to see if I can rearrange the lines. Thank you Debbie! :)

    Thank you for your beautiful words Rockman. They are a true compliment from someone who writes like you ...Samia :)

    Your poetry is your sirens song. Dazzling and entrancing until all is consumed, leaving the reader to wait for the next tune. Well done. Rockman :-)
