Neptune’s Daughter

DSC_0009Rock and limpet,
Sea and shell,
Oh, what stories
You might tell!

Of mako shark and
Shipwrecked sailors
Lost at sea.

Love songs of
The humpbacked whale,
Farewells as a ship
Sets sail.

Jellyfish that sting
With grace,
Corals waving
Fronds of lace.

Sea slug, starfish,
Kelp and ray,
Eel and flounder
In the bay.

Squid and seahorse
Swimming by–
All the things
That you and I

Will never see.

Unless, one day
By unknown magic
Or perhaps by
Accident tragic.

We find ourselves
Beneath the water,
Swimming free
Like Neptune’s daughter.
