Back from the Brink

the sky’s hue
matched the waters too
that everything in view
seemed cornflower blue

then she appeared from behind
the boulders by the beach
and I observed her walk the white sand
carefree but with dignity

like a mermaid out of the ocean
grace had come to shore
heaven must’ve sent to earth this woman
who in all honesty I could not ignore

and so with my charms turned on
yet subtle in my approach
this humble startler could no more
let love lie fallow
