The Mermaid

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?
