Star-Spotted Ocean

Twilight back

star spots bright

in the sun-streamed water.

Never ending grin

as the whale shark swims

amongst the fish

and divers dressed in black,

rubber fins unable

to match the strength of hers,

hold on to

                    her dorsal fin

but she barely feels

them there as she ferries

them along on her back of stars.
