Unesco Heritage Site Haiku - Rock Islands' Southern Lagoon. Palau


rock islands' southern lagoon
we swim from
lake to lake

rock islands' southern lagoon
the sharks lure
us there

rock islands' southern lagoon
we wait for sharks
to appear

rock islands' southern lagoon
sunrise - the lakes laugh
in unison

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Fancy getting away from it all? The remote stunning Rock Islands' Southern Lagoon comprises 445 uninhabited limestone islands, the majority of which are surrounded by coral reefs teeming with wildlife - 13 species of shark alone can be found in this area.

The site also has the highest concentration of marine lakes on earth, in the form of isolated bodies of seawater separated from the ocean by thin land barriers. Luckily, the site's new Unesco status means that the construction of a dive resort won't be announced anytime soon. - msn web

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
