Do you see her bathing there? The maiden with pearly skin. Watch her comb her auburn hair While swishing her scaly fin. A maiden straight from legend! I can not believe my eyes. But I see her shining scales As she bathes in the sunrise. Please lend me your mournful song, And prolong my fantasy! I give you my heart to hold Far beneath the deep, blue sea.
I wrote this poem in 2013, and it was inspired by my love of the ocean. Your writing prompt for today is to Take a cryptid of your choice and bring it to life.
This is my interpretation. What’s yours?
