A breath inhaled, the sea impales
It’s glory and might in size
His waves swell, dips into pools
Liquid walls engulf, spinning cool
Rolling in, whitecaps churn a frothy delight
Below the surface, Neptune’s eyes alight
He calms the assault on sandy shores
To a curving wave, gentle as a summers breeze
The ocean licks the earthy taste of man
Covers in an embrace, a new love began
Sloping muscled flesh, with every breath they flex
To touch mortal skin would be bliss and a sin, perplexed
Recedes in ripples, leaving behind his salty minerals
A smear of a kiss that will mark like shimmering crystals
With every ripple back, mermen wait in turn
For another run of waves to crash and yearn
