A New Friend



Gliding through the cool water.
Golden sand below.
Blue sky above.
The sun’s rays dance across the ocean floor.

A gentle tug.
I turn to look.
A playful seal,
Pulling on my flipper.

“Hello!”
He seems to say.
Body inverted.
Face to mask.

“Follow me!”
“Now!”
Down to the sand.
He rolls. I roll.

“Follow me!”
“Quick!”
Dashing through the sea.
He swims. I swim.

“Follow me!”
“Careful!”
Into the kelp.
He hides. I seek.

Just a few moments.
Forever a treasure.
