     ... intelligent, playful, beautiful

My eyes closed, I see the dolphin glide,
It's smooth streamline body slides through the water.
Below the glassy waves it weaves a playful path.
Folding above and below the surface of the water.
Rolling onto her side, this noble creature looks up at me.

A dark intelligent eye looks into my body. Asking if I want to play.
I smile back.
From the bow of the boat I cannot reach the dolphin to stroke its soft body, to touch its nose and place my head against its head and bond.
For this moment, I just admire its beauty, intelligence and grace from the other side of the water's surface.
Even without tactile embrace, we connect through our eyes and the glistening water edge.
The dolphin smiles back at me, to say that she understands. This moment will be continued in another dream. After a few more waves she descends. Our time to play will continue in another dream.

About this Poem...

Animal: Dolphin
Description/motivation: Dedicate to one of the most amazing dancers I know! The incredible Kira Olson. :)

This is one in a serious of poems I've written about various animals. The motivation, is that I love the idea of spirit animals, and I decided, one day, to ask many of my friend what animal they think best represents their personality. In some cases the poems are written with the person in mind... and sometimes it's purely about the animal. Read more about my process here.
