Sea King and the Magic Jewels

Carpe Diem #1355 The Sea King and the Magic Jewels (Japanese fairytale)

a thousand times
repayment not enough
brother unappeased

seaking

tears mixed with sea
Lord of the sea salt rises
giving hope

in the sea of reeds
palace of fish scales
glimmers like gems

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

trust broken
jeweled princess returns home
leaving her child
as the sea path closes
her sister appears with a song

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

sea flowers
sway on the reef
gems of the ocean
