A Dolphin's Dreams - Poem by Stephen Katona

My dreams although short,
Some, I can report:
Riding on a wave,
Being rather brave,
Fish finding song,
Dolphins young,
Man caring for the sea,
Letting us just be.

Topic(s) of this poem: animal

    well, this is not one of my favorite poems, but dolphins aren't known for their poetry, ARE THEY?
    and it probably will remain JUST BE A DREAM that men care (adequately) for the oceans and leave dolphins and such alone.
    maybe this poetic dolphin needs to team up with Moby Dick (or his descendents) to wreak havoc on bothersome humans?

    thanks, dolphin, for sharing. bri :)

    I like wondering what goes on in animals' heads - I suspect the dolphin may be a surprisingly deep thinker. (Report)Reply

    Thank you Sunprincess. You've inspired me to write a poem called: A Wholphin's Tale.

    Thank you Pradip. I think sometimes a short poem is more powerful than a long one.
