Like a bird
First trying its wings

A toe
Slowly submerges
Into a bright blue

As other pass,
Swimming by,
With skilled strokes

Moving forward,
Looking so beautiful
And so majestic

Enough to leave
An unprepared onlooker

Captured by
The view
That continues
To hold true

No matter
How many times
The splashes
Have bade adieu

Turning into ripples,
And leaving nothing,
But a simple
Calming blue

There’s just
Something magical
About seeing them
Fly free

In their home, And toward the
Deep inner sea

If their group
Will one day
Include me

I, too,
Could one day
Belong to the sea

This poem was inspired by a writing prompt from the “Storyteller’s Vault” Publication
