Return

The first Ragtag Daily Prompt from Emily: Return

Every year
the water’s filled
with splashes
with gasps
from the crowd
who line
the coast
hoping for a glimpse
of majestic
Humpback whales
as they return
to warmer waters
to calve
and mate
giving hope
of a new life
as they travel
giving pleasure
to people
who return
every year
to watch
and wait.
