Requiem for Enope

Watasenia scintillans
Darting in the deep cyan,
Sparkling as the firefly might
Commencing dusky summer nights.

You and all your kindred shine
Dancing in the deep’ning brine,
Flash and glint and find your way,
Interlace, caress and play.

Flicker to attract the one
Who kindles and ignites the sun.
Bathe in being at your prime
Until your light fades faint with time.

A life so short, a stature small
blush and glimmer for us all.
