two dolphins swimming
an endless sea before them. . . .
and love knows no bounds
the dolphins follow instinct
but fun times ensue. . . .
frolicking in rhythmic waves
they leap up to catch sun's rays
splendid torpedo bodies
gliding gracefully along
as their world mirrors blue sky. . . .
Andrea Dietrich grew up in Iowa and now resides in Utah with a spouse and two cats. She has two grown children and six grandchildren. Having graduated BYU with a Spanish major/ESL minor, she has spent most of her adult life teaching. It wasn't until 2000 that she began writing in earnest and discovering her "niche" as a writer of lyrical poetry. The internet opened up a new world for her, and she has spent nearly a decade now participating in poetry clubs, acting as a judge of poetry contests for various magazines and for the website Shadow Poetry.
