The Ancient Seahorse

Immortalized there in the Trevi, Poseidon and his wondrous steed; these legendary beasts of the waters gallop the ocean forever free. Ancestry of the charmer sea horse forever pulling a gods’ chariot; noble they grace heraldic armor, gallant specters swimming free. With flailing flukes they do serve, part fish, part horse mounts of Nereid; eyes of spirit see the silver chariot, on the waves of a glistening sea. Reflected high up in the heavens, Hippocampi hide among the stars; for in constellation of Capricornus these creatures will forever reside.

So lovely M.L. - this sparkles like the waters of the Trevi fountain. I love the blending of the story with your poetic lines "creatures...forever reside," "gallop the ocean forever free," "flailing flukes." Congratulations on your win.

Are you sure that you've never written mythology books?! Your verse is so wonderful. Where do I find your publications? -- In the Science Fiction section, the Fantasy section, or the Mythology section? You excel at so many different genres! Great write, M.L!
