  361.     

I Wonder

Vast, mysterious ocean
What secrets do you hold
An eight-legged octopus
Perhaps a pirate's trove

Around Atlantis hidden
Dancing in the sea
Brightly colored Clownfish swim
Amongst Anemone

Floating past a mermaid
Lying fast asleep
A dark, sleek submarine
Silent in the deep

A sunken Spanish galleon
Filled with gold doubloons
Swum about with toothy sharks
The wreck seaweed festoons

You sit in silent wonder
Waves lapping at your toes
The sun sinks down, the tide comes in
You stand and turn to go

  362.     

Sea Change

Forgotten identity...

The crab doesn’t fit his new shell
The old was the young
The young is too old
And the new is too vast

Fascinations fade...

The dolphin put away its magic tricks
Tricks are for charmers
He swims to deeper water

Becoming bored...

The gull perched patiently waiting dinner
Life in paradise is worse then it seems
And the hunt to find it turns to chore

Confessing defeat...

I can’t stand or swim
Like that crab shivering in the sand
I await the wave
To wash me away

  363.     

My Day as a Frog

(to the tune of up on the rooftop)

Frog on a lily pad,
Hop, hop, hop
Into the water,
Belly-flop

Dive down deep,
And swim around
Kick back up,
To solid ground

I’m so hungry,
I will eat
Spiders, snails,
Worms and bees

My sticky tongue,
Flicks in and out
It brings the food,
Back to my mouth

I am full,
So off I go
Hop and swim,
Back to my home

  364.     

The Amber Rose

Across that sea
The amber rose,
Beneath the waves
Of mid-west prairies,
Trailer parks wharf
Swim hermaphroditic mermaids,
The yeast of drunken eyes
Arises from swimming pools:
Hotels of cars
Parked in abandoned quarries:
Little girls celebrate
Angels on holiday’s sundries:
Her hand on a blue pants leg
Far away
Where the sun is flipping
Picture books and roller coasters:
Caramel apples
And hot dogs:
Out of the dust bowl’s tents
Palms are read,
Legs are shaved in
Motel room’s dusk
Parking lots of American flags
The preacher’s walk
A wayward liquor’s dance,
A nickel,
A dime,
A quarter’s romance.
True love at thirteen,
And then tomorrow a
Hot fudge Sunday.
 
Robert Rorabeck
