An immensity amount of the water. Unlimited vastness.
Smells of salt air, and my feet felt hot sand.
Sounds of the breaking waves whisper in my ear.
Delights the voice. Bewitches me with gossip news.
You think I listen ….
Water! Saltwater, in my blood become.
My gray hair is covered with seaweeds,
and I’m wearing a long dress made of shells.
I startle me.
The waves celebrate noisily.
The fishes guiding me by inside the water.
And the mermaids recognize me in this body
White salt with smell of the sea.
