DOLPHINS

ONE dolphin.

One silver shadow.

A blade that cuts the ocean

Without a ripple.

ANOTHER dolphin.

Another silver blade.

Gliding through the sea-jewel

Not leaving a scratch.

NOW the blade joins the shadow.

The blade is the shadow, the shadow, the blade.

They smile, laugh, and swim together,

And the ocean glimmers with the sun.

ONE giant leap together,

And the shadows are gone.

The shadows like the blades

That laugh.
