The Ocean Teems

I did this Tanka poem for our 2010 Summer Reading Program at the Meade Library

The ocean is bursting

With teems; teems of fish and plants,

Mammals and insects

Harmoniously living,

Eating, feeding and dying


Some are known by all

Many are still hidden down

In the dark deep depths

Regardless, they all obey

The creator’s law: teem work


Tam Raynor, 2010
