The Sea Calls, How Can We Not Answer?   poem  
Supporters Only!
Creators: Deirdre / Wyld_Dandelyon (Writer)
This is a traditional poem of the Duurludirj people, embodying their relationship to the sea, with all of "her" beauty, bounty, and danger.

...The sea calls like a mother,
"Fish for breakfast, oysters for lunch."
How can we not love her?

Author's Notes

I'd been thinking about the differences between the Duurludirj and the Irfai before the May 2011 Muse Fusion. With all of the ocean, water, and sea monster prompts (suitable for Sea Monster Month), this poem came very close to simply flowing onto the screen.

Grandma Loved the Sea is the poem I wrote a few days later showing an Irfai point of view on the sea and sea monsters. Reading the two together should give you a sense of some of the differences in Duurludirj and Irfai culture.
