the girl with the silver bracelets--one of a series of old mermaid poems
The Girl with Silver Bracelets

What does an old mermaid require
but a pocketful of air,
a bowl of seaweed soup,
and to always be the girl
of the silver bracelets,
a clinking armful
capturing the light
for an instant
then letting go
into rainbows.


Author's Note: I definitely "borrowed" the final image from Elizabeth Bishop's poem The Fish---might as well imitate the great poets! I am working on a series of poems using the concept of an old mermaid.
