The Mermaid Dream

                                   [Photo: My finger painting:)]
The waves rolled calmly
Lulling the sea animals into a deep slumber.
As the little fishes slept among the corals
They heard her singing softly.
The murmuring of the mermaid
Soothed them in their dreams. 
Was she beside them?
Or was she nearly a figment of their imagination?
As every night the angels of the seabed 
Drifted away to sleep,
They came under her spell.
A flash of black hair,
Luscious like the waves.
A dazzle of bright colors,
Vibrant as the faraway rainbow.
A soft sigh, and the swish of a tail
She thus floated in and out of their dreams
As they smiled and slept on
Waiting for that first ray of light
To fall on them from above.  

[Have you ever seen a fish smile? Do you think they can? Perhaps the song of a mermaid can put a smile on their face:)]
