Mermaid

Silver flashes through ocean swells sound ripples across the water strolling the moonlight kissed water surrender to nights sensual promise foam breaks, mermaid soars resplendent cobalt teal diamond skin shimmers powerful tail propelling her way phosphorescence trails behind sea sparkles flitting in her wake face startles, finely dotted aqua spots thick lips pout, fierce, predatory fiery orange and red markings warrior lines swirling, cheek to neck swims towards me, I’m awestruck daggered teeth, transfixed purple searing eyes, allured flips mid-air, veers away to plunge deeply her tail douses me in sea water I laugh and marvel savage beauty of the sea silver flashes through ocean swells Entered in “Give me your best new poem Poetry Contest Sponsor: Emile Pinet Dated 12/10/2019 Placed 8th with thanks

That's just how I imagine mermaids: not thin beauties but strong and fierce valkyries of the sea. Good luck in the conest, Georgia.
