Freedom

Freedom

One day it just snowed and they
Closed the road to my heart.
It lasted months just like the seasons
No time, the only reference
Was to the sun, moon and stars.

Years ago I sent you a letter.
It said I’m having a wonderful time
But send reinforcements.
You responded immediately by phone
Saying: “Just like that offer me everything.”
What could I say? What could I do?

Last week I read about a dolphin
The military trained to video underwater,
With a camera strapped to its
Dorsal fin.
Following months of training he was
Released into a hostile environment.
The dolphin relayed video as he
Disappeared into open ocean
            Freedom.
