dahlias of stars

Dahlias of stars fill the sky.

Below, a mysterious expanse

of sea, home to anomalies,

exotic and strange exist in

deep trenches or rise to the

glimmering surface.

Bell shaped blobs with slippery

tendrils and sun seeking plankton

catch in the froth of white horses

that drop them on the shore,

feast to scavengers or saved

by the rush of incoming waves.

We are grains of sand ,

A speck of hope, an inclination of desire

spellbound in particles of splendor,

beating against the current,

crying out for the tide to save us.

“Dahlia of the Universe ” Diane Marcotte
