Hi everyone, I hope you’re well! I’m sharing a poem today. I hope you like it!
Watching and waiting just on the shore
Not sure yet who she should be
She swishes glumly in the surf
As she dreams of climbing trees
She watches the dolphins all twirling
Feeling such jealousy for their glee
What she wouldn’t give just to sample
Only a droplet of their esprit
Her peers seem to be most contented
All toeing the line dutifully
But something keeps pulling shoreward
And she basks up there regularly
She thinks of leaving for somewhere else
But would she ever be free?
Or would her restless, churning mind
Keep her washed up in life’s debris?
She would like to lead another life
And to redevelop her ki
She’s tired of living her day to day
And of herself to some degree
So there she sits, in the golden sun
For perhaps an hour or three
Dreaming daily of her escape
And of a life beyond the sea
As always thanks for reading, I really do appreciate it!
Until next time,
