message in a bottle

in tribute to hero starr’s brilliant ‘diary of a mermaid girl’ series

We search the depths
for the maiden
with the fish tales,
dropping lines
to legend,

mother of all pearls,
word strings hidden
within abalone shells
from long ago.

We sea fans miss
your mermaid muse
who tells the oldest stories
oceans know.

Whether she comes back
or stays below,

thank you, hero starr.
