Admirative Symbiosis

by Shaun Terry

Sweet, mature cherry wine
flowed from honeysuckle parcels,
pearlescent and soft as tender young skin,
and as tenuous, too.


A bright, bulbous jellyfish
careens through the sea,
gently illuminating other
brightly-colored sea creatures.
Its propulsion lands vital
phytoplankton in the belly
of a giant whale.
