The delicate choreography
Of jellyfish drifting,
Entrances the eye…
Ethereal shape-shifting,
Suspended in time,
Going nowhere.
Each dance is a game
Of softly dealt solitaire,
Forming and reforming,
Ending never the same…
Together a kaleidoscope
Of graceful, lacy beauty.
Watching them brings
An abundance of peace,
Acceptance of all things,
Even the ghosts of love–
No longer suffering, but
Dreaming endlessly.
