mermaid dreams

the ocean’s power

twenty lifetimes of burden for one to bear
is unjust
life asks so much of some
while requesting so little of others
the waves you cherish
float sorrow along
when you’re ready to let go
let the bad memories sink
to a place where they can no longer drown your thoughts
or consume your heart
perhaps there will come a time
where the waters won’t be so tumultuous
peace will ripple
and sailing on a cool breeze
through silent ocean blue
an aqua-eyed mermaid
with delicate feet
and hair spun of flaxen gold
will find you
welcome her with open arms
allow yourself
happiness
and the power of
the magical ocean
find the peace you seek

House Mermaids

Dear Friends,
Look ’round your home. If you have a daughter, you have a mermaid. A beautiful, lovely creature who’s sometimes unsure of where she fits in. She is playful likeĀ the seal, but can be stormy like the sea. She adoresĀ her sparkling fin but pines for shoes. She is bold asĀ the barracuda, when she’s not ‘hermitting’Ā withinĀ a vacated shell. She cherishesĀ her hair, but would trade it to save the world.

Thank you. May you dream of swimming with dolphins and whales upon a sparkling sea…
