“Dolphin” by Carole Jacobs, Wales, UK. Painting by Tom Higgins, UK


(Painting by Tom Higgins, UK)



Slip silver along the length of my back,

see it gleam,

turn to black

as wave-water holds me,

dips me in silk.

Only a stretch of muscle,

arrowed beak,

curving in the night air,

to plunge deep

through the kelp I’ve moved.

There I can show you

the shoal of my dreams,

swirled through the green,

touched with the moonlight

I have trapped in my fins.


Carole Jacobs, 2016
