On Waves Of Starlight - Poem by Denis Martindale

When dolphins dream they dream of stars,
Above the ocean's realm -
Starstruck by Saturn, Venus, Mars
And sights that overwhelm!
The planets move like eyes above
And stars like snowflakes fall...
Perhaps they signify God's love
Poured out on one and all...
Fluorescent flames of radiant power
Transcend both time and space,
Portraying precious gems each hour,
Outliving human grace...
The Universe seems full of life
Though mostly unexplored
And consciousness must battle strife
Till order is restored.
Thus dolphins line up in a team,
United, friend-by-friend...
A sovereign family meant to dream,
Till waves of starlight end...
