Mermaid

In the bottom of the sea;
Lies the phenomenal reverie.
A mermaid piercing  the ocean;
Pledging to be free.

The mermaid’s hair;
Swirling like ripples of water.
Beauty oh so perilous;
Heaping pile of slaughter.

Upon reaching the surface;
A mildly peculiar land.
Approaching of a Sailor;
Extending out a hand.

The Sailor wishing to hunt;
The mermaid’s peaceful life.
To capture and to take;
As a lawfully wedded wife.

Knowing the sailor’s lust;
The cause of all the fuss.
The mermaid gaining trust;
Made him bite the dust.

In the bottom of the sea;
Lies the phenomenal reverie.
A mermaid piercing the ocean;
Pledging to be free.

Autumn Cherry

Under the moonlit sky;
Blossoming cherry,
Petals doth fly!

Sweet cherry blossom
Thy lingering scent;
Travelling in autumn,
With thy consent.

Stunned by the beauty
Surrounding magical night.
Gazing upon mutely,
Wondering in delight.

Blooming cherry tree
Soft pink perfection.
Pure radiating bliss,
Thy sole confession.

Under the moonlit sky;
Blossoming cherry,
Petals doth fly!

 

(The Autumn Blooming Cherry, i.e “Prunis subhirtella Autumnalis” is a beautiful flowering cherry tree that blooms twice a year)

Passion

romantic_love_couple_smiling_wallpaper

Hark! bloweth life,
Into a stone.
Nay! Thy heart,
Doth I disown.

Thou art a votary,
To fond desire.
Tis passion of late,
Which thee conspire.

Thy passion is such,
As fiery ember!
Thee scent,
Tis fathoms,
Suave lavender!

Hark! bloweth life,
Into a stone.
Beguile thy senses,
With bourguignon.

Ye riveting gaze,
Much like a maze.
Setting thy heart,
Thoroughly ablaze!

Tis passion which sets,
Thy life asunder.
Lying awake into the night,
Reminiscing thee,
With sheer delight!

Hark! bloweth life,
Into a stone.
Nay! Thy heart,
Doth I disown.
