Liquid Feet

AMPHRODITE rules the sea
Her consort, Poseidon, thinks it's he
Encircling the sea with her blue liquid feet
She flows onto her seahorse to see who she'll meet.

I, on the shore, straddled a dolphin
Crashed through the breakers for frolic and laughin'
I giggled and grinned 'til off fell my feet
My ankles and calves to make it complete.

Where are my limbs? I can't stand anymore!
 Amphrodite answered– with thunderous roar
" I saw you enter my cobalt door
I've never even seen a girl before.

Just seals and dolphins–such a bore
The more I see you, the more I adore
I am the personification of the sea
And you're the splashing image of me."

She called me Rhode; poured me a treat
Cool foamy water replaced my feet
Now I float with my new found mother
And swim with my dolphin, for he is my brother.


  1. I sat on the shore
    And watched you swim out,
    Heading seaward and waving good bye.

    And thought to myself
    Oh, my, my, my
    What a lonely Captain am I.

  2. Captain, Dive in and swim with us dolphins.

  3. Wow this is a horse of a different colour. Beautiful, Capt. Depingo! Ride on!

  4. Love the handling of the water/feet. Very energetic painting.

  5. Prettiest jockey I have ever seen. Ride on, Depingo.

  6. How do you think up all this stuff?

  7. After all this dabbling with digital painting, finally you got your feet all wet! Oh yes, this did have a poem too. No comments on it, just LOVED IT!

  8. Fabulous blog and artwork. I have never seen anything like it!
