I agree with Robert. It's a travesty that a day out on the water is more important than what lies beneath. Good luck in Carol's contest Carolyn on this lovely Haiku about an awesome animal....:) smiles

I hope they are making a comeback. Too many of them have suffered fatal injuries from boat propellers.

Lucky you to have seen the Manatee, Carolyn! I saw one once near a camping zone in Florida, and yes it "evokes joy".:) A beautiful thought, to write a Haiku for this splendid creature. Good luck in the contest! Love, Mikki

Carolyn, you have such diversity in your poetic prowess. Loved it. Thanks for your comments on Granfather's Clock poem. I heard the song when a child some 70 years ago, but of course I re-engineered the circumstances to make it my own.

Manatees are a really endangered species. They are also existing in the waters of Papua New Guinea. Best of luck in Carol's contest and have a great week!...Love, Gert

I think Manatee is a rare animal with rounded tail I have once seen in Florida in 1998. Caroly. How are you? I hope you are fine.
