Whispers (8) Njörður’s Wave

mermaid 3

There are times
When we all fall
like fools
but what is most
important
is that we rise
up again.

The sea
has over time
eroded the coast
and given its power
might in time
reclaim
the land
but victory cannot
be proclaimed
so long
as one rock
remains.

That is the reason
why the suicide bridge
is at times –
deserted
and only the sea
gives up
its dead.

And of those
Njörður said:
‘Are mainly mermaids, that have failed to feel the wind.’
