Poem: Phoenix of the Blue Sea

Her eyes are so familiar
Blue like the infinite ocean

His smile is so familiar
Like the warmth of the Spanish sun

In each others arms memories
Weave across time to the present

Older than their lifetimes
Made new in this exact moment

They found a love that burns like fire
Like fire the love turns to ashes

From fire though rises the phoenix
And so again their love will rise 

An ouroboros of passion
Destined to consuming itself

A poem based on Saana’s prompt at dVerse in the Korean style of Kasa broken into 8 syllable couplets based loosely on the Legend of the Blue Sea.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. What more can I say about this piece? 😀 It’s absolutely enchanting and heartfelt. Love and romance is entirely consuming, I enjoyed how you captured that idea here. Such wonderful work.

  2. This is incredibly incredibly stunning! I especially admire; “They found a love that burns like fire/Like fire the love turns to ashes/From fire though rises the phoenix/And so again their love will rise.” Thank you so much for adding your voice to the prompt. 💝💝
