Three cheerful nereids stole

Poseidon’s trident. Now

Floating flowers

Slowly collide with

Plastic debris


Men turn into

Bubbles; women are

Sea glass… Children ride seahorses

In the ocean’s womb. Sailors die

Crashing against tsunami walls



In the festive waters, my

Heart inks the waves

With a pale pink

Thought — I’ve always

Wanted to love a



Salty water

Burns my eyes. Three beautiful

Nereids lustfully dance

Around me

  1. Hey, HeartBeatsBlue. Would you check out my blog under the “Connect” tab to see if you’d be interested in writing a page or poetry or two for Girl poems? I really like your writing style and I think your contribution would help to enhance the book.
