"Waking Up with Dolphins"


Coffee brewed; eggs digested

Feeling strong and well rested


Out on deck, binoculars keen

Ocean surface a gleaming sheen


Sudden shock, twisting neck

Someone yells, what the heck?!


Graceful swimming, gentle spouts

Lots of smiles and gleeful shouts


Tall black fins, soft white back

To share what they know is what I lack


A family of orca is sharing our morning

The sun is shining, and my spirits are soaring


Cameras shutter, some stand with a look of stun

This ocean family has a young one!


What a way to start the day

Bon voyage little family, be on your merry way!
