A Poem by Captain Dave

Time stops.

The image burns into a lasting memory.

You can’t wait to tell someone, anyone

you search for words – but find them inadequate.

Years later you still see them leaping all around you, explosions of water…

like fireworks.

Hundreds of wild animals that have every reason to fear you –

not fleeing in terror

– instead –

swimming towards you

and with you –

jumping and playing.

You want to be like one of them

and for just a moment –

you are.

A gift from above

for those who are willing…

come to the water.

– Captain Dave
