|Dolphins we swam with on the Big Island (credit)|
My friend Anne Jennings Paris has been challenging some of us to write the poems that she's been assigning to her students. Recently, she asked us to write a poem in the style of Emily Dickinson. This poem was inspired by meditations I've been doing lately that focus on my breath. During a meditation, I envisioned a dolphin. I felt like she was there as a kind of spirit guide.
