Turn Loose the Mermaids

Share

The mermaid grace, the forever call

Beauty in spyglass on an old man's porch

The mermaids you turned loose brought back your tears


At the end of the river the sundown beams

All the relics of a life long lived

Here, weary traveler rest your wand

Sleep the journey from your eyes


"Turn Loose the Mermaids" by Nightwish

Winner of the first poll for more for Obscuretober was Mana from Rumiko Takahashi's underrated series: Mermaid Saga. And just in time too, for her birthday. I love to make any fanart of her works each year as she is one of my many biggest inspirations.


I highly recommend looking up for these series, be it "Mermaid Scar", "Mermaid Forest" "Mermaid Tears" whichever, it's all a very beautiful and interesting horror/mystery series.


Happy Birthday Rumiko-sama.
