a dedication to the little mermaid of Copenhagen

The little mermaid

a dream
heading for
the open sea
she sits
and stares
to flashes
into her
silent world
at ease
within solid walls
her glance
turned inward
towards existence
so far away
out on her own sea
where the wind
whispers freedom
into her ear

A fine sense of place and inner reflection that brings the solitary bronze statue to life in a really well crafted way. It is years since I saw her but your poem transported me back there. Thank you. Peter
