The Dolphins

This is the beautiful artwork of another poet, Showers of Blessing, whose blog is worth a visit or many.


You mean the picture, you ask? Yes, and so is the artwork itself! She and a family member created this lovely figurine:

And here are some lines this sculpture inspired:

With kicking thrust from water’s sheen erupt
A pair of piscine travelers abrupt;
In glistening graceful arcs before our eye,
These fellow mammals calm transmogrify.

They chirp a complex greeting to our cheers
Before again the liquid air they sheer.
Now bubbles and a gentle rolling swell
Are all that’s left their giddy whirl to tell.
