A Poem by Captain Dave
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…
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 –
A gift from above
for those who are willing…
come to the water.
– Captain Dave
