Post 215: new day, dolphins, ocean, friends, family, South Carolina, poem, painting

by Carol Bass



has never been alive before
like a new baby

many dark grumbling days
a necklace of black pearls
lost in dusty shadows
under the bed
we were quiet, pensive
gathering our insights

but today
the waves are rejoicing
serving up breakfast for dolphins
slapping, dancing their bodies on every coast

sing with us
come on
fling out of the shadows
come sing
