      Metamorphosis

      Gray shadows tumbling
      Through moonlit cherry blossoms
      Pair bonded wolves at play

      Singing he gives chase as she
      Darts, leaps in air to the sun

      Iridescent wings
      They are hawks above the waves
      Flying in love’s song

      She skims the sea’s changing edge
      He pursues, catches, dives deep

      Glides, nipping her flanks
      They dance in dolphin’s ballet
      Rising into air

      And to the beach a blooming
      Two humans, man and woman

      Lost in passion’s flame
      Drowsy in each other’s arms
      Flowers scent their sleep

      Waking, fusing their spirits
      During Springtime’s rites

      This is lovely, Alais! There is so much movement in your language--you have managed to depict a vivid scene, and an engaging story, within such a brief,

        This is lovely, Alais!  There is so much movement in your language--you have managed to depict a vivid scene, and an engaging story, within such a brief, deceptively simple form.  I hope you will keep playing with forms and sharing your results.

        Sincerely,
        Catrin ferch Maelgwn
