Spawned Salmon
Lost past exhaustion
she floated, lapping the shore with the wind and tide
Completed, her journey done, spent
Returning to dust, as we all must
A lonely solitary shell
caught in the shallows upstream
where she was born
Many years before
And where she was called back to
closing the circle of her life
fulfilling her destiny,
her place in the universe.

We have an Ulu!!! What an amazing knife for cutting, especially vegetables. Also Salmon, YUMMY!!! fresh like that is especially good. Makes me hungry, in more ways than one. ;)

Wow, I've never seen anything quite like that. I LOVE me some salmon. The roe picture was particularly interesting. I've never seen roe look that way, before! :)
