Haiku Poem

at first only black
now only twisted metal
I can feel the screams


くろかげ は くずれた ふね や うめきごえ

I have written about two of the shipwrecks in Hawaii and how they were purposely sunk for divers and for a reef project. I have been on many shipwrecks in Michigan that were sunk because of accidents. For example, many were rammed by other ships on foggy nights, fires and rough conditions are the main reasons. Many of those shipwrecks that I dove still had the remains of the crew on board. When diving on those ships one can feel the anger and sadness of the ship that was sunk in its prime. One can almost hear the cries of the crew as the ship sank trapping everybody inside.
