"Echo" Copyright 2002 Aliyah Marr Oil on Wood

I dream a dolphin dreaming that I am one of those humans I can see on the shore.

How long I have been separated from that powerful current, and from my playmates frolicking in the soft, soothing waves?

When I finally return to the ocean, waking up inside the belly of that beautiful beast, I have a feeling of coming home.

I am rocked on the breast of the sea, soothed and seduced by the warm sun.

Nothing more is needed, nothing is wanting, nothing pending.
