Sunbeams glide across oceans of gold,
awakening Poseidon from his slumber.
His trident flashes bolts of lightning,
summoning mermaids from their dreams.
Tails splashing rhythmically in delight,
their scales flash like colors of rainbows.
Seaweeds sway in depths of splendor...
blessed with water, their world is paradise.
