shallow dive rescue
alone, hungry, soft whistle
time for your bottle

Baby Taz was found stranded and abandoned last month near Sanibel Island, Florida. Nursed to health, the little bottlenose finds a new home at the Indianpolis Zoo.

I am always so pleased when I see that a dolphin has been rescued. They are special souls, creatures far advanced in so many respects with so much to teach us. This little fellow seems quite content in his new home and grateful to be "found." We all need a sense of belonging. Lovely image and haiku for him.

abandoned, perhaps
orphaned, heartbreak masked too well
by dolphin smiles

Your haiku is so sweet, Phil. Taz's new habitat at the zoo looks so spacious. Does he have friends there? This was a beautiful post. Love, Margaret
