lola goes for a swim

then she shakes herself
she's heavy -- big for her age
and her thickness sways

in perfect phase shifts,
periodic and fluid
nose-to-tail movement.

the sun is shining
as each water droplet is
released on its

magical journey;
individually they
are tiny crystals

but together they
form a rainbow spray, soaking
foreign onlookers
