Fish – haiku ended with a free verse

Fish in frozen pond
It is swimming to the sun.
Hopes for hotter air —

Fish, water and sun —
Forming a natural cycle —
Win life together.

Fish, can you feel me
Stir the water to get you
Out of frozen pond.

Fish stare at my eyes.
They beg me to stop and go,
To find other funs.

Fish….
Me….
Life….
Like
Fish….
Water….
Sun….
Can I play with this life the I want?
I know I can.
But like a fish that can’t live in frozen pond – waiting for
The sun to melt it down.

I am a fish in a life full of water under the sun.

Exchanging Blessings With The Gentle Giants

I went to Oslob, Cebu, Philippines — for whale shark watching last week. Butanding is the local language for whale shark (Rhincodon Typus). I wanted to exchange blessings with them.

With Michelle and Jerry – a tour guide and a driver – I left Mactan at 5am.

Deciding not to plunge in to the water, I didn’t bring any swimsuit. Ok, a boat was rented….

The boatman is part of the conservation team…. See the T-shirt worn.

Many people already swam around something…. A group of butanding enjoying their breakfast

The gentle giant was peeping below my boat. Please let me offer you my love, dear butanding….

Look at the spots on the body….

He is deeply, seriously giving his blessings…. Or her blessings….

Blessings to the feeder on the boat….

To the onlookers on and beneath the water…..

And, to me….

Before I finally left the site, I put both my feet into the water and prayed in my heart, telling huge blessings then leaving them into the sea. Thank you, butanding…. For the blessings we exchange.
