Austerity Measures Napowrimo #6

Cascading golden-eyed dolphins entrance,
soaking the sea in soothing embrace,
breaking and sighing as dorsal fins fly,
filling this cup aquatic

St. Joseph’s Parrish awakens the lips of
a dark-haired girl caressing her violin;
it shapes her body

We are lightly elevated
in this storm, where clouds stand
vigilance and rooms
less vacant;
as the rain comes,
floods follow

Beneath the sea a softness
waits — a reticent curl, unfurling waves,
as cascading golden-eyed dolphins sigh

  1. Beautiful verse Pam! While we see the turbulence above water we forget or may not realize it is different down below. True of certain individuals who appear rough and belligerent but good natured. Great!

  2. I really love the last stanza of this poem, Pamela. The image of the cascading dolphins is stunning.

  3. Gorgeous writing, Pamela! My favorite lines:
    “Beneath the sea a softness
    waits — a reticent curl, unfurling waves,
    as cascading golden-eyed dolphins sigh”

  4. Beautiful piece! Seeing the softness of the sea around the corner in the midst of the storm, and beauty of dolphins… a gift. Very nice writing!

  5. Really nice images, I like the dolphins, cascading – I haven’t seen them for ages but I know just what you mean.

  6. i am sighing myself a bit…that last stanza just rocks…and some really nice views between even in the flood below…
