Inspired by Maj Ragain’s poem, “Let the Dolphin Dance – A note to my daughter Megan”, I focus my imagery upon his words:“Hineni, in Hebrew, I am here. The words of Abraham, (spoken) long ago, to the same father.” My girl’s solid presence seems to bewilder the father. She stands upon the striped bass "...its wild life”, captured.
