Haiku Poem – 海の王族クジラ

our whales are back
mothers guiding their calves
ocean royalty

(Jim Woodhull)
しんきせつ うみ の おうぞく こどもづれ

Even though there have been a few sightings of whales since last December, I had my first real big sighting this January. A Mother was guiding her calf in fairly shallow water, about 16 meters or so and slowly swimming back and forth for about 20 minutes until they descended. For the next few months this will be a regular occurrence.
