Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey, with no time for literary nonsense.

I was just thinking once more about defining the word greenygrey
for posterity
in the English languagey
when I suddenly had an epic epiphany.

Human Nature Becomes Humanynature

I thought how greenygrey’s uses within the human and natural worlds could be narrowed down to human nature.

Then I thought that in greenygrey style that could be made into the word: humanynature.

You may ask Y?

Get in the Queue Humanynature

While, we think humanynature would be a great new word, I would like to reassure all you greenygrey supporters that finding a home for the greenygrey is our first priority.

Dolphinian Mermaid in Halcyon Sea SOS Poem

MoonLight Mermaid

Today we have a mermaid poem by Denise Margaret Hargrave that combines idyllic scene-setting words with an environmental message .  The poem was recently published in A Mermaid’s Tale of Xanadon’t and Other Poems, which is the latest in Wendy Webb’s mermaid series, and features poems by Wendy Webb and guests.

Thanks to Denise for creating and sharing the poem, and Wendy and Anne Mullender for helping to make it available here.  Enjoy!  

SOS

From
the sea
she sprang like
a dolphin, and
hovered shimmering
turquoise in the ether,
an otherworldly being,
spectacularly beautiful,
waves of golden hair tumbling down
in halcyon light, hallowed
and haloed.  ‘Save our seas,’
she said.  ‘Save our seas.’
Then with a swish
of her tail
she was
gone.
