The dolphins come
Unexpected, always invited,
fire water beings, without reason but often in rhyme.
They glow, they burn through my heart
Remind me how free, frisky, and fresh life can be
Tonight I felt trapped, you grey blue fish goddess, with your finned Aretha Franklin-ed heart, set me free
Can my goings and comings be like yours?
Fluid, always in the right moment but never announced
Each time like the first time,
You a charismatic lover one returns to in between moonlight, recipes, roses, spices, and years
Whispering wisdom and magic; then leaving when there are other worlds to sing in
You live by the rule of the moment; you regal sassy creatures,
You rule the kingdom of the sea by not ruling and you turn my heart to song
