Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge: “Inspiration & Plan”

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge this week is “Inspiration & Plan,” #Synonyms Only.

Shark fin soup is a delicacy served in China and part of Asia in weddings and special celebrations. I had shark fin soup when I lived in Hong Kong a very long time ago but didn’t associate the soup with the sharks because it’s called fish soup. In today’s price, it cost about $100 a bowl (one cup).

I love watching documentary movies and nature videos. I was shock and sick to my stomach when watching fishermen catching the sharks, take them on board the boat, chop off the fins, and then discard the sharks back into the ocean where they die from blood loss, suffocation, or are eaten by other animals.

Ever since I watched that movie, I boycott eating shark fin soup. I hope more people stop eating it so there is no market for shark fin soup.

For personal gain

My objection is small, but

Eyes on saving sharks fire on


Life is likea cup of tea
