Son & Dad & Whalesharks


"Spotter in!

Go, go go!" We jumped on in

Not sure what was below.

"Stick your mask in.

Look straight ahead."All went silent

Like life was dead.

And suddenly there it was.

This massive creature came in view.The biggest fish in the ocean

and the most gentle too.

And there we still wereSwimming next to it in shock.It was a whole new world

And time seemed to stop.

I don't know how long it was

How long we shared that spaceBut the feeling was unreal

Something that can't be replaced.

Dwarfed by its size

I remembered feeling smallBut being in its presence

Left me in awe.

But unfortunately for us

The swim had to conclude.We let it move on

In the ocean blue
