Unicorn of the Sea Jaunt
and post notes and photos about your poem like Eve Roper.
Under an orange sky and giant rainbow, Mestor, the free spirited son
of Poseidon, God of the sea, earthquakes, storms, and tamer of horses, climbs upon
his Narwhal, the unicorn of the sea. Setting off with bounding leaps through the
waves the beast travels at full speed.
Ten foot long spiraled tusk protrude from the head of this beautiful beast and point
As he powers on, he listens to faint clicks, whistles, and knock sounds in the wind of
his friend who is following him.
Across the cold icy Arctic water, with excitement and adrenaline pumping, he forces
a path over and through the waves.
Wind sweeps across the dark curly hair on his face as he admires the energy and
power that the ocean waves hold.
His piercing icy blue eyes make him ruggedly handsome and lets one know that he
is in control.
A sign of glimmering movement along the beach in the silver wake of the moon
catches his eyes.
I hear a faint voice in the wind and Narwhal, the unicorn of the sea, drops me off
and I swim ashore.
Welcomed by my beloved Peitho, goddess of persuasion and seduction daughter of
Aphrodite who is waiting for me.
The narwhal is the unicorn of the sea, a pale-colored porpoise found in Arctic coastal waters and rivers. These legendary animals have two teeth. In males, the more prominent tooth grows into a swordlike, spiral tusk up to 8.8 feet 10 feet (2.7 meters) long. The ivory tusk tooth grows right through the narwhal's upper lip. It lives year-round in the Arctic waters around Greenland, Canada, and Russia.
