Wishful Fishy: A Folia*
Secondary fish friend, I stare
as Ariel sink in sea of love,
life with prince she wishes to share
while mine’s to fly like a white dove.

In response to Napowrimo Day 21. (yes, catching up! :D)
Today I challenge you to write a poem in the voice of minor character from a fairy tale or myth. Instead of writing from the point of view of Cinderella, write from the point of view of the mouse who got turned into a coachman.
Told in the perspective of Flounder of The Little Mermaid.
The Folía is:
- stanzaic, written in any # of quatrains.
- syllabic, 8 syllables lines or shorter.
- rhymed, rhyme scheme abab cdcd etc.
- ridiculous or nonsensical.
