Mermaid's Milk: a collaboration with the still dashing David Williams

The moss clung tightly; making it unbearable to breathe, 
and she sealed her lips tighter than a clam’s— not letting the pain take over

As the stars drift silently, like ships on a lost sea of darkness,
she whispers to Hope: 
“Swim free and look for the horizon, then come back to me...”

The night; collected on the leaves, 
       drops fell like Mermaid’s milk onto an already moist floor
Striking the shimmering tearful medium, 
         it gives birth to a shower of graceful pearls as the dawn awaits


I hear your voice drift upon a cool ocean breeze; 
              gilded words of adoration 
I glide towards it, praying that it guides me, 
          strengthens me, 
                nurtures me 
  like Mermaid’s milk

Touch as I might, my senses are in-different to please, my voice mute!
Be my Siren’s song and sing for me, serenade my senses back to life...

With an inquisitive tongue, I taste an almost scentless flower 
It is but a wisp, a whisper, a flick of a ray of sunshine, but it was There.

So much is lost. 
    The rivulets of time, hear me, see me, like a ghostly apparition...
Capture me in that moment by lovingly painting me. 
Sing me a song while you do, 
            and let the Mermaid’s milk flow again.

Thank you David, for waiting ever so patiently for my long overdue part-- 
it was a very nice challenge for me to write this :) 
Thank you very much for the inspiring lines...

    Hey this is VERY VERY cool...mysterious, dreamy, just COOL! And thanks for pointing out the mistake. I changed it to 'stand' instead of 'stands'(or stans!) actually because I like the way that sounds..not sure if that's proper English, but oh well!...;)

    Nikko, You and David have really put together a wonderful poem. This may be the best collaboration I have ever read. It's wonderful. I am doing fine, not very inspired these days, unless i write about my father's death. I may, but I may not. :) How are you doing? hugs, Catie

    You got me saying Wow with your comments here, Catie-- I'm happy to have worked with David-- I'm glad to know you're doing fine, and I think I can relate about writing-- I am kind of in the same boat right now, that's why I am thankful I got to write this one...I'm going to get busier this month, eep. I still owe visiting you.
