Beneath the still, silver waters
The god in eternal silence sleeps
Waiting for the ripple of crystal tears
To shatter the mirror of dreams.

Beyond the reach of endless streams
Lies a treasured, fleeting love
And as the starlight fades to embers
The heavens stir, forever weeping.

Ice rims the verges of his heart
Withholds the blessed rain unfallen
And yet, yet she comes to stay,
This sacrifice for a dying land.

Beneath the moon's argent rays
The night-blooming cereus wakes,
Warms the cold celestial hand
To gently touch her shining face.

Above the lush earth and sea
The unbound heavens whisper softly
Of this cherished mortal, beloved
Of the god whose heart she keeps.
I was inspired to write this poem, based on the manga, The Bride of the Water God by Mi-Kyung Yun. :frail:

everybody had said the great descriptions with excelled interpretations, neatly, very well organized and executed, on points that I was impressed when I read your poem.

speechless is the only one action left i could do, and i think that poem deserved to be appreciated more.. (relating it to the manhwa)

btw, i like your sig, 1% idea 99% hardwork <3

Thank you. It's not something that comes to me everyday, this is one of those 1% idea:99% hardwork! And I was touched by the message of this manhwa. If I were a god, would I be willing to give up immortality for the person I love? The answer is yes :D

I read this and thought of Tom Bombadil and the River's Daughter. Ever read that?

Thank you so much! :hug: It did take me awhile to finish it, far longer than doing other art. I haven't written a poem in months and had some difficulty with the last part. :D I'm looking forward to your new poem, let me know when you post it? :heart:

I wish I can recall some of those nice dreams, but I sleep like a log, and when I get up I'm usually in a big rush, no time for contemplation :X
