Echoes of A Dolphin’s Life

Lights & Sirens - Mother & Child
Echoes of A Dolphin's Life
by Michael Doyle

Synchronized sleeping
From danger keeping
Half brained and one eyed
The pod keeps from being surprised

Following the secrets of mystery
A familiar echo explores the sea
As a whale's song is heard in the distance
And against curiosity, there is no resistance

Safety by numbers offer security
But the oceans offer so much to see
A mother's tone brings this echo home
No suitable dolphin should ever swim alone

Beauty it seems is in the eye of the beholder
As humpbacked rivals grow ever bolder
There in their majestic blue dance
Is the opportunity for whale-sized romance

While a dolphin babe presses on with echolocation
To hunt for food along the ocean floor's circulation
Razor fish hide just below the sandy floor
Until the hunger calls, impossible to ignore
