Connection to Your Soul

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.


I was born in this foreign land

That I have not seen until now

A connection born so deep

The depth is true soul within me

I could feel the happiness

Of the people

I could feel the pain from the soil

In my heart

Entwined within all the horrid tragedies

And the laughter of the happiness

The land of the mermaid

And the colored homes

The palm in the heart

Where my ghost roams

In the market square

You can hear the clap

Of the horses hooves

The lady selling her biscuits

Echoing in the background

The crowd is loud

Laughing and joking

While the sun shines down

On everyone

A people united

Connected from the

Heart of the City

To the pit of their womb

My mom loved her time in Warsaw. Perhaps I should go.

Hi Eric, there is a mermaid statue in Copenhagen but this one is from Warsaw, Poland. The mermaid is very popular in Europe. Lol. Thank you for the kind words. :)

Hi Rasma, thank you! :)

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on November 01, 2017:

Very cool for some reason I think I have seen that statue. One part of my brain says Copenhagen and the other says Amsterdam.

But I suppose it does not really matter as your poetry outshines any statue. Thank you for sharing it.

Great tribute to a nation and its people.

Thank you Demas. :)

A paean to a wonderful people and nation threatened it would appear by the global warming's sea rise. I found this one of your best.
