Poem of the Week: Aquarium Love


As I slowly stroll

down the winding walkways, 

around the touch tanks, 

and through the glassy exhibitions. 

I am engulfed. 


As the water ebbs and flows, 

the light catches the water just right, 

it sparkles so sweetly

through the brilliant blue hues.

I am entranced. 


As the aquatic life blooms and bolsters its beautiful beings, 

a jellyfish catches my eye. 

A spectacular and sweet being 

slowly but surely makes its way to me.


We stop 

and we stare.

I absorb his being as I observe his being.

I becomes we

as we dance to the rhythm of the waves

and the beat of the heart. 

I am in love.
