DAWN'S GIFT

Silver bodies
formed of morning mist;
leaping arcs
of dancing light
move closer
to ride the waves
at breakers edge.

Foolish woman, to think
that dolphins
would appear for you.
They simply came...
happenstance.

Magical though, a prayer...
then this,
as if it were a gift.
Dare I allow myself
to feel so blessed?
