Watery & Outdoor Wednesday | Mysterious Beach




3 Days 2 Nights

A perfect Jogjakarta trip
Stopped by Parangtritis
To feel the breeze
of the mysterious beach

A legend was told
To all; behold
A Queen of the South Sea
Nyai Loro Kidul
THE beautiful nymphs
Or... perhaps a mermaid
part human, and part snake

She, who controls
the ocean, can too take one's soul
Folklore said and seen
Not to wear the colour green
As she, Javanese Spirit Queen
Would say "hello,
how have you been?"
Then you... would never been seen


More story of my Parangtritis trip here.

Okie dokey, I will never wear green when I go down there.

Love your poem, you make the Queen of the South Sea sound so scary.

J_on_tour@jayzspaze,

it was blurry though, i need to tweak alot. i guess thats the technology back then.

Shingo T,

its not a touristy spot, hence am pretty sure you wont go there. no worries.

I've never seen a horsedrawn vehicle on the beach, so it was interesting, and I love the waves!!

Hey, is that you on the carriage? Beautiful romantic setting but I see there's only one passenger and the driver ... kakaka!
