Bittersweet Categories: jellyfish, beautiful, blessing, emotions, happiness, love, universe, Form: Free verse

is a beautifully woven paradox.
Both a blessing and a curse.

that always transition back to
soft whispers and gentle fingertips.
Nonsensical in its entirety,
but worth the effort nonetheless.

Wonderful sea, you gracefully,
send us blue waves, on hot summer days.
Blue like the sky, your waves wave hi.

Jellyfish, crabs, the corral reef as well!
You make me smile, all the while.
Aquarium Categories: jellyfish, poetry, Form: Blank verse
Dim tunnels curve a segmented ocean.
Bat-winged feeding specters

blow gas tanks. Rainbow skimmers

dendritic minds dangling.

I wake up with her,
eyes creaking like blind stars.

Awoken by the sun shining through the ocean surface.

I chartered a boat for sea fishing

One little jellyfish swam quite free
Swishing and gurgling capriciously
With the hiccups it seems
Propelling his jet streams
Back and forth simultaneously
Two tiny seahorses swam in place
Gawking at jellyfish face to face
One said "NO!" does he know
There's a shark at his toe
Ready to...Read More

Jellyfish Categories: jellyfish, boyfriend, break up, care, first love, growth, Form: Narrative
One day last summer,
In the stagnant July heat,
I was swimming in cool, green, waters.
As the one I loved
Dropped an anchor

So that he may watch me dance.
My Hands glided
On top of the still bay
Fingertips believing it was made...Read More

to their heart,
she entered dragon tail swinging
Plastered smiling walls of bachelor resistance

And as the henpeck frowns
rose from the rubble,
an arthropodic shell of a man
was kinda ready
to take a...Read More
