dusky whaler,eastern blue
Seems like the ocean had one more day for me this year,
a charity swim.
And one more treat in store.
It wasn't this shark, though that distracted me long enough to stop and get a good hard look,
It was The Big Groper.
I have never seen him, and there he was, right beneath me, fanning his fins and having a Very Nice Time.
I asked him if he preferred the company of garfish or snapper.
He looked me up and down, and said," you more resemble a snapper, if that is where this question is leading."
Thrilled to have received this comment, I thanked him and swam on.
I told small boy, who was disappointed not to have seen the groper.
But guess what? I saw YOU!
Next best thing.
