Whale shark

entry picture

We pass boulders representative in size of elephants

winter grey, similarly creased.

 

A bobbing buoy iconically hatted with a gull

clangs out its presence across the water

but does not distract our widened eyes

from gazing astoundedly

at the semi-submerged lorry-sized

ocean-going giant with a miniature brain

 

peaceful Mobyesque monster

holding our attention's for too little a time

before the tall fin and tail disappears into the depths

leaving us sharing gasps.
