Pisces vacation...
  muscles melting in the sun
    waves cradle gently
      bodiless, only the now
        Mother Ocean rocks her child

    Unlike Kathryn, I will eat any fish that doesn't eat me first. A lovely lullaby on the ocean wide. Enjoyed your tuna tanka!

    Hey Tiim - My birthday is in March. I don't eat fish but love Mother Ocean rocking her child. Beautiful image. Thanks for your insightful comment on Jeanne Marie. Jeannie was my daughter and died in 95 at the age of 21. It was a snowmobile accident in late morning on the brightest sunniest day you've ever seen. love, Kathy
