Swan Song


A body of water supports

a body made of water,

saltwater tears increase the levels of the sea,

there’s power in her movements.

A dancer in suspense, an ugly duckling

anticipating the shift towards the beauty

of the swan.

The lapping of the waves are her wings,

a flightless bird weightless,

drifting, drifting, drifting.

Days roll on and nights grow darker as

she is becoming of the sea;

crystals shape upon her lips and soon

coats her whole body in pure white rocks.

A single ballad is sung until the

transformation is complete and

she is one with the sea forevermore.
