Pale moonlight draped the lonely shore.
A solitary man stood looking out across the warm Aegean sea.
His heart torn. Did he love in vain?
Far away, on the wings of the wind, he heard a yearning, keening, calling….
A Nereid sang a sad lament of star crossed lovers, for Poseidon’s power had pulled her from her Mortal man, down home to a silvery cave beneath the briny deep.
The man’s tears for a forbidden deity, witnessed only by silent Starfish on the beach.
