Haiku Poem




Sharks striking movement
Clashes with cold, steely stare
only thinking of food.




鮫の美しい泳ぎ方
目は空っぽの部屋のようです。
食べ物のことだけを考えています。



Seeing a shark underwater one is impressed by their beauty. They are very graceful in their movement and their eyes are in a way very cold and serious as they only think about eating.

水中で、鮫を見たら、美しさの為、非常に驚きます。泳ぎ方はとても優美ですが、目を見たらかなり冷たくて、食べることしか考えていないみたいです。





More graceful dolphin,
the shark now looks so clumsy
so playful and wise.




もっと優美なイルカ
比べたら鮫の泳ぎ方は美しくないです。
イルカは陽気で賢そうです。



When seeing a dolphin underwater they are much more graceful than a shark to the point that they make the shark look clumsy. Also, when looking at their eyes one can see a very high intelligence and playfulness.

イルカを見たら、泳ぎ方は鮫のより優美です。イルカは鮫の泳ぎ方と比べたら、鮫のは全然美しくありません。それに、イルカの目を見たら、すごく賢そうです。ずっと遊びたいような顔つきをしています。

    私はいつか、野生のイルカと一緒に泳ぎたいです。
    むかし、落ち込んでいた時に二頭のイルカが海の底から助けてくれる夢を見ました。
    それからだいぶ状況がよくなったのです。
    その時からイルカと泳ぎたいと思うようになりました。

    Aloha Yukiyo san!

    Thank you for your nice comments about the dolphins. I am very lucky that because of my job as a scuba diving Instructor I have swam with wild dolphins many, many times! They are my favorite animal. I am glad they saved you in your dream! There is an old sailor’s legend that dolphins carry the souls of people who were bad when they were alive and now since they inhabit the dolphin they have to spend all of their time helping and saving people to atone for their past bad lives! Next time I take pictures in the water of dolphins I will put them on my blog!
