Adventure with the whale sharks

by Connor Barron


Diving into the ocean,

Clear water,

Red Jellyfish.

Then it appeared,

The enormous, gigantic

Whale SHARK.

The brilliant, bright blue,

With the beautiful white dots,

Slowly moving through the water.

I was amazed, not only by the size,

but the fact that I jumped into shark infested waters.

A beautiful, graceful animal,

and a memory that will last a lifetime.

I came,

I did,

I conquered.
