Shimmer (Dance of the Dolphins III)

Shimmering water beckons woman to a new dance.
Sister of Eve heeds the call.
Whole and embodied, her spirit is home.
Dormant no more below earth’s surface, passion ignites.
Breath’s rhythm shifts.
Born of joy-tilled ground and watered with tears of sorrow,
Golden light embraces her womanly body. And thus,
She,too, shimmers. She glows. She dances.

Hi aka Lucy, Your poetry is lovely! I too love dolphins, and you have made their dance so joyful and tangible here.

BTW, the singer/writer Jewel compares dolphins to female energy as well in her poem "Wolf and Dolphin" (a personal favorite), its also called "Swedish Lullaby". About it she says "When I was writing it I didn't know how to say man or woman yet. But I knew how to say wolf and dolphin..."

Looking forward to following your blog...

Blessed Week : ) Wendy
