A Poem by Harmony Hodges

The Octopus
The soft bulbous protuberance paused
one tentacle palpated a
dead fish
Seven arms still swam
dancing through murky water
until a shark approached
the never ending ball of camouflage
rolled across the ocean floor
a gliding mass of mystery
Composing musical lyrics across the water
humming love notes written by
punctuated with spilled ink
Harmony Hodges is a mixed media artist living in Portland Oregon. She writes poetry and fiction. Her writing has appeared in With Painted Words.
