The Salty Deep

O you
Magnificent
Fish,my
Delectable
Feast;filled
With coriander
And thyme.

dsc02541_mermaids_400You were
Once king
Of the seas;
The salty
Deep.

Swimming
With mermaids
In Poseidon's
Cave;the
Earth shaker,
The tamer of
Horses.

Now you
Lie in your
Briny sleep:
O you
Magnificent
Fish,my
Delectable
Feast.

As the
Day falls,
And the
Stars rise:
I dine
Amongst
The babbling
Crowd,the
Clinking
Champagne
Glasses
Punctuating
The air.

The
Aromas
From the
Kitchen
Wafting
Over the
Diners,
Mingling
With
Violin
Music;
And for
A moment,
My thoughts
Turn to
You.

For
You
Were
Once
Freer
Than
Me.
