Miniature Mermaid

Miniature mermaid lounging on lost flower petal,

floating down sluggish streams.

Seemingly, not a care in the world, it seems,

the world's ever-changing affairs, no need to meddle.


Echoing whispers of maternal wisdom mingle in tree canopies,

coming of age proved to be peppered with good intentions.

And nagging dogmatic voices, only stirred up dissentions,

but in the melodious, majestic moment, there were no such monopolies.


Future worries were null and void in the mind of miniature mermaid,

delicate scales shimmered brilliantly in the singing sunshine.

Basking in glorious, lustrous atmosphere, creation almost divine,

if only, forever, on this flower petal, could she have dwelt and stayed.
