Chivs86 Poetry - I wish I was Dolphin.

Updated on April 22, 2012

Chivs86 Poetry -
I Wish I Was a Dolphin.


A feeling of peace,
coming from the shallow seas.

When I close my eyes
whilst I try to sleep.
To calm me down
what I think about -

Is if I could swim
and didn't drown.

How it would be
to live blissfully,
In a blue blanket
of man's mysteries.

How it would be
to live free
(where man can't see)
with Manta Rays
and Coral Reefs.

Coming up for air
only to dive back underneath.
Going places
that would deny a man's belief,

With no chairs and tables,
to take a seat
with the plaice in peace
away from the sandy beaches.

Although I might pop up to show my beak
to say hello, in the vein of hope
I'm safe to show, my face
before it's my time to go
because I know what danger I'm in with people.

The only down side of rolling

The life of a dolphin.


The life of a Dolphin,
the most intelligent of beings
a mammal
but more like a fish than a seal.
Living a life,
with the only threat being people
who'ld even make -
the nastiest shark's in the sea
look peaceful.

But even still life is easy
without the land lubbers
about to get greedy.
Water ways
with no sandy beaches.
Faraway hidden in a place of secrets.
How life would be?
I think golden.

If I died and I came back

as a Dolphin.


Original Idea & Inspiration.

I came up with the idea for a poem about Dolphins, after coming up with this question
My answer was of course before even writing on here that I would like to be a Dolphin. One of the worlds most intriguing species and I was bit confused that more didn't think the same. A lot of people said they'd like to comeback as a human, but why would you. I mean a Dolphin is free spirited, social, fun loving and charismatic creature who lives in clear waters and goes wherever the weathers nice, and humans we are insatiable, destructive, boring and trapped by our stupid little ideas. I know what I would want to be.

Anyway about the poem I started writing it about 2 weeks ago, I didn't touch it and I came back to it yesterday. I had a bit of writers block at first, but (you're gonna laugh at this) then I came with the idea to google the lyrics to the song 'Under the Sea' in Walt Disneys 'Little Mermaid'. So I read the lyrics to this song, got a kind of feel for it, and when no one was in the room I even started singing it. Afterwards bang... that was it, I'd finished my latest poem.

      Beautiful poem and equally beautiful pictures. You really capture the sense of freedom associated with dolphins. Like you, if I had the chance to come back after I died, I would return as a dolphin. Voted up and shared.
