If Poseidon had been granted the gift of flight,
Perhaps turtles would have feathery wings instead of flippers,
You would see dolphins cavorting in the midday sky
Splashing through clouds and leaping over rainbows
Perhaps you would see whales in the dead of night,
Floating calmly through the deep, murky blue,
And scattering the stars.
Oh, what a world it would have been,
If water had wings.
