Dolphin Serenade

Poem by Denise Gillette

Deep hues of blue sparkle like sapphire marbles.
The ocean floor maps the story of the world.
Anabas to Homo sapiens - a blue print of
civilization, a tale of triumph and carnage.
Dolphins sing sorrowful serenades. Harvest moon, opaque like opals, reflects the sea.
Earns cry, fluttering in the moon-lit sky.
The depths echo epochs of time.
Atlantis murmurs - Long forgotten.
Dolphins sing in the calm serene. Torrents of rain - gust chilled, whip
through the snow white tides. Poseidon
conducts his orchestral maneuvers in the
dark black. Vessels bravely face their perils,
rocking to and fro. Dolphins troubadour. Apollo's chariot carts in the sun showering
its golden rays atop the cool green earth.
Seaweed softly sways against the salmon-colored coral.
Delightful dolphins romp the aqua waves --
Serenading the world with melodies of wishful expectations.
