365 days of Mermaid

Here’s to a beautiful year.

This is the longest relationship I have ever had with any kind of social media account (with minimum fluctuations) and I seriously never thought of coming this far.

Will keep posting like before (every Saturday) and will try to read each of your work.
And I actually like WordPress, so hope to stick around here, till next year.

Thank you for reading, for making me believe that words can never lose their magic.
If they ever do, I know other forms of art too 🙂

Thank you ♡

  1. CUE

    Deep breath …
    And …
    Dive …

    Cue: Fish
    Swimming along alone
    Unwittingly … Alarmingly … Lost
    In some pea soup or other
    Cue: Foghorns

    (Cue: Definition
    “Anything said or done
    On or off stage, that is followed
    By some specific line or act”)

    Cue: Some moment designated: LOVE
    Containing its own built-in distress
    Statutory though … So no blame then
    And with also some kind of kindness
    Inserted just to be on the safe side
    As Spring springs to life past Winter
    Hmmm … Seems time to learn to listen to learn from Nature

    As seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, years, whole lives
    Slip by missed since busy spent seeking top marks
    Spent forging on from nought to zero and back
    For where’s the harm? Where’s the harm?
    After all, after all, what’s zero after all
    But the ground from whence all …

    Hearts grow cold, a cold unnoticed
    Hearts go to seed, to lockstep
    Lockstep, lockstep, lockstep
    From here and now to eternity
    Nowhere now forever forever
    Unnoticing the Eternity
    Already here

    Drowning in a homegrown madhouse
    TVnRADIO busy busy busy working
    Busy bent normalising the unforgivable
    Exuding daily an utter absence of gorm
    So good to have a friend though
    Even if it is kind of imaginary

    Children knew what those are all about
    Before some way or another forgetting
    Alas a loss alas a loss alas a loss
    Brightness of eye now bedimmed yet body
    Not yet quite hunted to extinction
    Has and retains a mind of its own

    Descended from apes
    … Just not very far
    … And not always in the right direction
    Sheep bleat, mumble
    “Don’t push at the back there”
    An immodest silence
    Opens and closes

    Stuck fast twixt yes or no, cheese or chalk
    Meaninglywhile preferring another option
    A timeless walleyed stare into the abyss
    Doomed to this personal threshold

    Deep breath …
    And …
    Dive …

  2. “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
    Alligator knows who quoted this and what the depth of these lines. All this time I met mermaid, it was a gratifying experience. She is strong, determined, courageous, unmovable…words are less to describe her. Her poems are magnificent, never seen someone with this type of writing style. Pouring her heart, giving life to words, making you to imagine that scenario right infront of your eyes. I wish there are more years to come for you!
    Queen of oceans, mistress of words!
    You-know-who.
