Postcard by Leola Walker, Canada
MERMAID
water-baby
like my first born
who swam in my
womb's gentle waters
a gilled miracle
neither fish
nor beast
water-gifted
her fish tail
curls & uncurls
flirting
with the pleasuring sea
always gathering it
back into herself
entire
she comes & goes
grows fainter ...
becoming a myth
of ecstasy
storms
in the greening dawn
