If the Sea was She

by RGstar

If the Sea was She

If the sea was a maiden known as she, and her salted tears our burdens be
Could we then not let love reside, in the darkest shadows of compromise?
And if pink her cry for bygone days, it's simply to remind that time repays
As the oyster shed its pearly eye, so quells her wrath of years gone by
Her sweet perfume fills cloudless air, hyacinth wild, as birds appear


Blue thoughts on windy days coerce, to taint and tease with rhymes and verse
Her quill then writes a symphony, a serenade for all things free
Her dress be formed of sequined blue, reflecting skies of heaven's hue
With frills of white to reach the shore, tonight she'll swirl and chant once more
When morning comes, in calm she'll sleep, as seagulls hunt the spoils they reap


But mind; beware our frailties, of reckless greed and commodities
The dolphin cries a sad lament, and the swordfish sigh in nets for cents
The Marlin, faded color blue, through lifeless eyes its tears shine through
And the turtle swims its fated mile, its skin for belts; its fate, for style
Smiling tears; blind destiny, beneath her smile we dare not see


Silent wings with broken veins, she'll heal once more from human chains,
A gentle breeze recites her verse, enchanting rhymes of the siren's curse
The wistful fog; such a lonely embrace, in ripples of darkness, she moves with grace
Ascend, descend, transcend and cease; waves caressing; her soul appease
The urchin, as I, and the starfish decree, ''if the sea was she, how wonderful be''

                                             ...yes; If the sea was she, how masterful she'd be.

Earned A Seal Of Quality

We seem to want to destroy all that is beautiful.
When will we ever learn?

Each of a number of women or winged creatures whose singing lured unwary sailors on to rocks.

The strikingly beautiful blue marlin is the largest of the Atlantic marlins and one of the biggest fish in the world. Females, which are significantly larger than males ...
