dolphin du soleil

waddling high vertex
lone mallard secret service
follows next to edge

twinkling midnight blue
sea so calm only one wave
smooth dots glistening

three dolphin heave to
now four playing front row view
stay here forever

thought you heard a seal
for a long time at the pool
now you see a dog

on his father’s leash
not familiar with the sea
sits on his blanket

he does not know yet
barking and pacing will not
stop the ocean’s wave

Rich Little of seals
he’s so fun to watch but not
as much as dolphin

need eyes on both sides
dolphin twirling having fun
dolphin du soliel

  1. Living close to the sea I have seen many a dog barking at the waves, even my own. Thanks Errin. You paint marvellous pictures with words.
