That’s such a sweet take on this poem! Thanks so much for your beautiful comment.

When I was a teenager, we had just moved to the seaside and nobody believed me when one night I saw a single wave fill the beach with these beautiful shimmering fish and just as quickly they were swept away. I later learned they were grunion. I wondered what it would be like to be one of those grunion coming up to spawn on land in such a frenzy… one can only dream! Needless to say, I always loved the ocean after that.

Thanks again for your comment.
