eyes of ocean crystal green
(sometimes blue as cerulean)
hair that's dark
but falls in waves
just like the ones that crash
from sea to shore

when you're a water baby
you can almost feel
those mermaid scales
teasing up your spine
as you dive into the tide

(the rhythmic waves
they say are pulled
by the moon)

and what a God he was
to decorate the sea
and sky with s t a r s

i'll keep this big blue mystery
in my (forever) beating
(starfish) soul
