Riding The Wave with Dolphins~





A light flashed across the pool
plunged into water; and disappeared 
The moonlight now tuning softly to light
opened a passage, like an aisle of an airplane
The 'indigo blue'...made me eager to dance
Me, myself lapping against the waves
uprooting weeds along the course, followed the beat; 
shaking my hips and toes like a ballet-dancer
in the middle of corals and reefs
I spun n spun...Flamenco-like
Tides whispered in my ears, pecking my ankles;
the underwater glares and the rainbows created
A beautiful arena for me... 
I kept floating, swimming, flowing
bending, gliding, meandering like a dolphin
My graceful movements were so alluring
Each subtle move, so precise, a dolphin rushed forth
Embraced me, kissed me in semi-darkness
All night, we danced, happily..merrily....

  4. This is truly stunning. I agree with Vishal. It has a dreamlike quality. To swim like a dolphin and then be embraced by one -- no greater joy!

    So glad to see you in Poetry Jam, Panchali.
