eclipse Posted July 3, 2014 Share Posted July 3, 2014 A mermaid with a moon tattoo wakes on the beach after dreaming about fire, she finds an empty hourglass, sees some burning driftwood looks into the flames and sees that the fire is dreaming about her-she discovers that she cannot return to her former state as a mermaid, makes a plea to fellow mermaids for help."None of you have encountered the arid idle incantations or the shoddiness of their songs, if i am captured their capacities will not be great enough to appreciate my limitless enchantments. I have passed the man with the moon in his eyes and cured his indigestion of the soul-he has strung his musical pearls between the moon and earth, he will i believe be investigated by angels seeking intimacy and the mechanics of his melodies.I heard the reaper collecting apples as two towers collapsed-I remember how we kept him away from damaged ships with the power of our songs. I have listened to a sphinx singing songs no one could hear waiting in vain for a man on a cross to reappear. I have heard ghosts whistling shantys in caves and robins tempting me to forgotten graves.Sceptics don't believe in mermaids, Blake called science the tree of death, Einstein said imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world and all there ever will be to know and understand".
