Two Mermaids - Poem by Cathy Nerujen

Two Mermaids

Picture you as your
lips part in a
wordless murmur -
snake red tendril
of love lapping
along my lips -
the gentle flutter
of your eyes shining
in the moment -
the hotness
of your tongue
lancing my mouth
in the twilight -

fronds of wet
sea weed curtains
parting softly -
as a shoal of fish in
single file
swim through -
turn and curl as
vibrant anemones
smile and give way -
an undersea adventure
of pink shrimp friendlies -
like playing children
in a gadabout -

the twilight green-blue
depth of spinning bubbles -
rise and burst in
undersea blue whiteness -
the sigh of your love
is as pleading
as the deepest need in me -
Our bodies merge
against the dappled
darkened brightness -

your arms so
warm and slender
wrap around me -
your hair - slow motion
floating - weaving gently
into mine -
my body melting
in your love -
but never drowning -
two souls, two hearts,
two fish that swim together -
always swim in time -

we twist and play
as powerful currents
take us down -
the reassuring darkness
becomes our blanket -
my eyes are on
the sandy dreamy
dunes of love -
as we two mermaids
close our eyes and
ignore the world above.

Hi Colin, a card carrying member... gosh, that is making me think, and smile too. Stay dry and don't catch your cold, Colin. LOL. Oh you are so funny. I hope Sannel does read it, as I know she would like the poem. She is an awesome writer. Thank you for that, Colin.

Cassy is here and she says hi too. And Blaise is ever present too. You are always kind and humorous in your comments, and thank you for making me smile too. Have a sweet weekend, Colin. Hugs. :)

Hi Ruby, yes two mermaids in love ... and cherishing the bond together. When I think about this very special person in my life, mermaids appear in my mind. And my mermaid was the inspiration for this. Thank you Ruby, and have a nice weekend too. :)

Hi Mhatter99, wow... such an interesting description... I'll have to remember that one. Thank you. :)

@BeyondMax, when mermaids and poetry combine, something special and magical is guarenteed to happen. Maybe I should start a mermaid appreciation society..? Heh.... :)

Gosh, thank you for the nice comments. Enjoy your day, my friend. :)

Hi raciniwa, the little mermaid was a special favorite for lots of people. Including me. :)

My mermaids are different, but no less real and yes, heart warming. I love romantic poems that can be so different. Thank you. :)

Voted up and awesome. This is such a wonderful and magical poem. Love to fantasize about mermaids. Passing this on.


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 3 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Gypsy Rose Lee. Thank you for this. I have always loved the mermaids as a kid, and they always stuck in my mind. And today I guess they have other meanings and symbologies. And as a poet, it's nice to explore all kinds of symmetries about them in poetic form. Creativity is an amazing thing. And then I do know an actual mermaid... LOL. Thank you for the vote and passing it on too. Have a sweet day.

.....I must return to yet another sensuous classic by you and say No one does it better (remember that Bond song by Carly Simon) - the most glorious aspect of your poetic writing Cathy is one can read it over and over and each time it just gets better - just like the way true love should be - thank you for making me feel like I should get wet here - lol - and jump in and become a mer-man : female counterpart to a mermaid -lol

And once again I am wishing you and your sweetie all of the best things that life has to offer in 2013 and sending you both warm wishes from Colin and his cats, Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel at lake erie time canada 10:19pm


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 3 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Colin you really like these two mermaids. Hehehe. If you saw the mermaids in my Pinterest pages, you'd be smiling even more. LOL. Well it shows you just connect with my poems so much. Mer man ... that is awesome, Colin. That is putting such an image in my mind right now.

Wow, a few people told me that, of re-reading my poems and getting that extra "thing" from them. Soon everyone will be able to read them all in my book in the Spring. best wishes to Miss Tiffy and Mr Gabriel. Cassy and our cat max say a warm hi to you always, Mr Epi sir.

Life brings whatever it brings to us. Best wishes and warm thought for the new year in 2013, Colin. Congratulations on your amazing poetry award yet again. 2 years in a row. :)

Hi DDE, thank you for the nice comments. Mermaids seem to favor in everyone's list of things they like, or seem so fascinated with them. I guess they could be considered a sort of "evergreen" topic or area in writing or poems. But I can't pretend that is why I wrote this poem. It is because of one special Mermaid in my life.

Hi starstream: a girl's imagination can get to do a lot with ideas about mermaids when she is very inclined. Hehehe. I wrote this for a very special woman. Yes, it invites those thoughts, but decently invites them as well. Thank you for the comments. I hope you enjoy my poems. :)
