Magical Monday: Mermaids

Posted on July 30th, 2012 in Stories

Painting by Blond Duck

When I slip into the cool teal,

Away from the splashing and shrieking,

Lost in a world of blue,

I transform into a dream.


Toes become tail,

Legs fused into one,

Under the surface I spin and surge,

Back and forth across the white cement sand.


The waves, the sun,

The cold air against my slick skin,

It’s only when I come back for breath,

That I glimpse reality again.


And I know it’s silly,

Just a secret fantasy,

But for an hour,

I don’t have a house to clean,

A job to do,

Chores to finish.

For an hour, it’s just me and the water,

Fused as one,

A maiden of the sea.


For if I had to be anything,

A mermaid I would be.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  GREAT NEW ANNOUNCEMENT tomorrow!

    Oh how cute! I love the painting. Way back in 3rd grade, our teacher asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. I said, “A mermaid with a pink, purple, and blue tail.” I was devastated when she said I could not be a mermaid. I was equally as devastated when I was told my eyes would always be blue and not lavendar, though God knows I tried to convince people otherwise. Some adults can make childhood unpleasant, yay for those like you who have an imagination! :)
