River of Stones # 17


mrsthordarson.edublogs.org



Like gargantuan gray yams,
tapered to a paddle-shaped tail
two flippers in front,
snout that looks like it ran into a battleship
eyes like two deep holes
a mouth formed in frown,
as if they were once princes and princesses
cursed to drift about underwater
as Manatees.

This is wonderful. Did you take the photo as well?

I was putting up the photo credit when you commented. I didn't take this but my daughter and I saw these at Seaworld. I never realized how homely and sedentary they are. I was fascinated. I didn't get pics of them. I'll have to see if Lori did.
