The Visitor

#promptuarium #thevisitor

Living down in the depths of the deep

this merman surfaced – from the water he leaped

to replace some greenery that fell in the sea

the hedgerows and bushes, the occasional tree

And he made some friends – with the kids from the shore

learning about the fallen plants and more

they were growing their flowers and he was keen

to share details of sea plants that he had seen

So during the months and days that passed by

the merman kept watch on the cliffs and the sky

while the birds and the humans enjoyed the scene

the lovliest spot there had ever been.
