Into The Cool Water

What a beautiful coast! 😍 Haha, this is the third time that mermaids have made an appearance in a 100 Word Wednesday prompt, except this time, the roles have been reversed… 😄

Walking along the coastline
I spot a jeweled bangle
Admire the sparkling tourmaline
Put it on, let it dangle

Suddenly I can’t breathe
The air is too thin
And where my legs used to be
Have turned into fins.

How magical! I’ve had quite enough
Of water being out of my reach.
So I put on the magical cuff,
And I walk down the beach

And into the cool water.
I put the bracelet back on
And I don’t even falter;
This is natural to me!

This may sound strange;
But it’s time for a change!
Goodbye air and land,
Hello water and sand!

The Water’s Edge

Fun thing about this one – it seems to pick up where week 25 left off! That hasn’t happened before. 😄

I stroll to the water’s edge.
I watch the humans walking,
As I peer from behind a hedge.
All are jangling – what they call “talking,”

Going about the daily routines,
As if I were not even here.
I step out where I can be seen.
I recall the armlet – human, I appear.

It is so interesting above the water;
Hard surface below my feet,
And the sun seems so much hotter.
I wipe sweat from my brow – I’m beat!

I return to the pier, release the pin,
The magical bracelet falls free;
My feet are replaced by fin,
As I dive back into the sea!

Spin The World

It’s week 25 of 100 Word Wednesday, and here I am posting at the last minute again! 😅 If you’d like to join in the fun, just click the link! 😉

Lovely image, BikurGirl! 😍

I see the boats aplenty
Creating surface tension
On the water’s shiny top layer
Waiting to be ridden
On the open seas
Freedom!

Look at it how I’d see
With underwater vision
From my surreptitious lair
Humans are forbidden
From viewing these
Kingdoms!

Turn it upside down,
Yes, spin it around…

Tell me, what do you see?
The sky isn’t the limit,
It’s the bottom of the sea;
And the air below it!

I put on my special bangle
And one limit fades away;
Spin the world to another angle.
Now I have feet for the day!

Reflective Soul

This feels like an ode to the imagination…

Castle’s reflection in the water pure,
Crystal-like surface pretends it’s a mirror,
The panorama sparks my sense of wonder…

If I turned the picturesque scene upside-down,
Don’t even stop there, maybe flip the entire town,
And dove in, would I enter its reflective soul or drown?

Mermaids in their palace, or a reality check so callously?
Would it be a new tale of Wonderland that Alice sees?
Swim in and out of windows or fall victim to fallacy?

Ignore the facts and all the “hows” and “whys,”
Playing like a dolphin in the blue liquid skies –
Or would common sense be my demise?
