"Dash" - A Bottlenose Dolphin Poem

I have written and published many poems all my life, including a self-published poetry book.

"Dash"

I
love to
swim and play
in the warm Gulf
Florida waters.
Humans who love to play
in these calm backwaters too,
standing on their boards with paddles,
are fun to play with. I watch with my
bottlenose dolphin eyes. My name is Dash.

"Unexpected Friend"

We went out for a lovely day on the
Gulf water. Traveling on our way
back to the house, on our paddle
boards and kayak, we were met
by an unexpected
friend. A dolphin,
a bottlenose,
played along
with our
clan.
