Whoa!! That is a scary one. I wonder how many pods of fish died during the wars that were fought on the ocean or were you speaking of the fish looking like a silver torpedo? Enjoyed reading your work. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara

It's a pleasure to have your presence here, Sara. After reading your insightful comments, I can appreciate your dark interpretation of my haiku. I can see how you could read this to mean a wartime scenario, but my haiku really means that the dolphins resemble silver torpedos.. Thank you for your wonderful visit and for your kindness. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan
