A pod of plump dolphins plays,

diving, swimming in unison,

spinning like mini tornadoes,

or metal fragments dancing

above a shiny mirror,

following magnets beneath.

Fluid movements, gliding freely,

mimicking starlings in flight,

high in the blue sky above.

Kinetic energy, the flock

becomes a solid, silky scarf

floating, soaring as if weightless,

until the air current shifts.

Dolphins leap, twisting,

gleaming in the sun,

swimming in unison,

in the deep green brackish

Kennebec river, synchronized swimmers

in a finely choreographed

water ballet.
