Sirena Armenia

I swim through palest amber glow

Strongbow

Romancing The Stoned

I swam in your blood a long time ago

You remain in my veins always

Me, captured in amber memories

Coquina-like in the ocean of my soul

Could I be blamed for submerging here

Within a nautilus of love, desire, and total submission

Could I be blamed for reaching out just one more time

Could the ocean be blamed for returning to the shore

Should I be shamed for crashing myself here

Unto the only shore, into the only arms

That ever were strong enough to receive

Wild enough to conceive

Of a coalescence as primal as the earth’s

Own conception

And

Birth?

Ripples

I’m just a rebloggin’ fool this weekend. This piece, in all its ocean, male, salty sensuality, speaks to my Atlantic-cradled soul…

Thoughts...exploding in my head


A breath inhaled, the sea impales
It’s glory and might in size
His waves swell, dips into pools
Liquid walls engulf, spinning cool
Rolling in, whitecaps churn a frothy delight
Below the surface, Neptune’s eyes alight
He calms the assault on sandy shores
To a curving wave, gentle as a summers breeze
The ocean licks the earthy taste of man
Covers in an embrace, a new love began
Sloping muscled flesh, with every breath they flex
To touch mortal skin would be bliss and a sin, perplexed
Recedes in ripples, leaving behind his salty minerals
A smear of a kiss that will mark like shimmering crystals
With every ripple back, mermen wait in turn
For another run of waves to crash and yearn

Mermaid’s Dreams

Dreams have finally returned to me…

We met again last night
You slipped quietly into mind’s view
A shadowed goodness, a friendly idea
I’m surprised to see you here

Subconscious is a capricious destination
Images confounding, conflicting
Sometimes horrific, sometimes healing
Would I could hold the words they conjure

Capricorn and Cancer
In the early days
I joked that
Together we made mud

I am a fearsome Dual Cap
Born on a cusp
Just like a wave
A fey and fluid mermaid
Unmindful of the tempest
Fearless and surefooted
At the heights

You almost impenetrable
Gruff, Guarded
Until the shell cracked
And the pearl revealed
In truth you were
My faithful shore
A place of safety
Where I could throw
The storm-tossed waves of me
Onto your sturdy beach

Stability, my island
Is what you were to me
And it seems in these
Golden years that should
Be together but are not
You still feel like shelter to me

The final shriek and howl
Red skies at morning
Left me dashed, broken, bashed
In an unknown place
You scattered with detritus
Of a ship run aground
A spiteful hurricane
Spun our world’s axis
Like a child’s top
The Coriolis effect
Recharted our lives

In dreams, the world is set to rights. Different but calm, zephyr winds and blue skies…

The ocean rhythm that
Pulses still in my veins
Is irrevocably drawn back
Calmer now but like the tide
Under the moon’s guidance
Drawn back to a less craggy
Weathered and yet enduring place

In dreams you are still the steady and everlasting shore
I feel your calming presence though we are no more
Ever my siren heart’s cove you are it seems
Respite from all these storms if only in dreams

For Richard. Who I never wrote for because we were busy living the words.

Sad Mermaid

Easy

Can we slip into something a little more comfortable?

Slip inside these thoughts of mine
Move beyond what’s only spoken

There’s an easy ebb and flow here
A confluence of thoughts in motion

I feel the draw like tides to moon
Flow as natural as shores and oceans

Slip inside the currents in my veins
Just need a mind and heart that’s open

Mermaid Dreams

Big Pond

One fish, two fish
Me fish, you fish

Plenty of fishes
Wishbone wishes

That little fish
What a dish!

But wait what’s this
A Bait and switch

Not rainbow trout
Just a big ole mud pout

All the little fishes
With their fishy little wishes

Swimming in the same old puddle
Same old worms, same old trouble

Plenty of fish? Yeah, well… Maybe
They all look like sharks to me

This little mermaid went to the ocean
This little mermaid crossed the sea
This little mermaid loves a sailor
That has yet to capture she

One fish, two fish
Old fish, new fish

Plenty of shark-ish
Dangerous liasons-ish
Methinks I’ll stay alone-ish
In my lovely, landlocked home
…ish
