Hello, beautiful readers! It's been a busy week for me, and it looks to be an even busier weekend. I'm just getting around to Colleen Chesebro's #TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge. I didn't want the weekend to arrive without having participated in this week's prompt.
D.L. Finn honored us with a beautiful picture of majestic dolphins for this week's photo prompt. I have always loved dolphins and have seen them often in the ocean. I've ridden on boats many times in South Florida, and dolphins will sometimes swim alongside the boat. They always seem so jovial and playful. They exude positive energy every time I've seen them.
I chose to write a Tanka poem this week. I've become more comfortable with this form after using it a few times. Since I haven't had much time to write, this felt like an easy fit for this week.
oh, to be carefree!
to twirl and dance with laughter
to hear and be heard
if only people could be
as light-hearted as dolphins
Have you ever seen dolphins in the ocean? What was the experience like for you?
