Moonlight exposes a split ship releasing souls. One - naked torso gleaming - battles toward shore, arcing arms throttling breakers, eyes fixated on a cove flecked with witness. A soul released from turmoil, from wild hounds, rising, howling, he stands tall on rough sand, ruthless eyes roaming. Why sea, did you let this wretched wrecker free?
A fisherman sails into the fray of thronging pilchards, nets digging flowing furrows, eyes fishing for the glitter of her winsome smile. Green eyes dilate, steeped in fear: a tail writhes, thrashes free. Beware the hiss of a mermaid tide as her kiss turns to rage.
