The Upside down Mermaid

This mermaid floats quite comfortably upside down,

entirely right in her watery world, scales flickering red,

carrying calla lilies so carefully at winter solstice. 


Winged, she floats and soars in our imagination, 

Transformed from the depths with her flowers

and innocent eyes and pink wings,

where up is down and right is left. 

Direction doesnít matter, nor age, nor place.

Only dark and light.


Every day her light filters everywhere,

like violin music weaving the blue, blue water

and the blue, blue sky together

seamlessly, endlessly.

Even the night holds no terror.


Inspired by a visit to Isaiah Zagarís Magical Garden, Philadelphia, December 2007.
