C Turtle Haiku 4 U

Sea Turtle is king of
His underwater domain
And glides gracefully

    I used a naughty word. Oh well, haven’t visited the lounge for a while, and it is almost lunchtime.

    *ROUSING STANDING OVAYSHE* for the excellent photography:
    color saturation & the distant palm trees swaying in the breeze are an espesh. nice touch …., for the toitle’s flipperage and for Brinke’s haiku skillz

  9. Seconded. That is an amazing picture. Where was it taken, I wonder?

    @ Starfish: I looked at the linkiepoo and ’bout all I can tell you, is that the photo-posting webpage text is written either in Russian or in something like Russian.
    I attempted to sound / read a few words out loud to myself, but nothing that I tried,
    came out as any “placename” that I recognized …. Anybody else here who reads Cyrillic lettering and wants to try it out, maybe you’ll spot a place-name …..????

    Sad that my usual “lang-widge” analysis abilities failed me here.

  11. Don’t know the first word, but ‘preeznanni’ master in the world! [mir!] It’s fascinating underwater. 125 photos.

  12. Reminds me of Savannah Bay in Virgen Gorda (British Virgin Islands)…

    Or maybe paradise.

    I’m totally digging the sea turtle vibe on the front page today. :)

  14. oneskunktodd says:

    In fact we should just dedicate a whole day to it. We can give the kitteh’s more snooze time and have Sea-turtle-day instead of Caturday. Maybe once a month. :)

  15. I want to go to there.

    that is all.

  16. OMG, I really, really need to be there with the teeny turtle… love the pic, love the water and espeshe the toitle lol… wonderful colors…

  17. Watta lovely photo…..!!!
    And the teeney weeny Sea Turtle is beyond lovely…..!
    This picture evokes such blissful feelings and deep longings, and passionate yearnings….(like calling my travel agent immediately, packing a bag in 5 minutes, and winging off on the next available flight…..!!!)……Woooo Hooooo!!!! :lol:

  18. Oh you didn’t CO! Baby sea toitles two days in a row! Ded I tell you! Ded! (Me, not you. )

    Hanging suspended
    ‘tween two shades of blue
    I am at peace.

    *ahem* My very first attempt at haiku – how did I do?

  21. The more haikuers, the merrier,TOJane! Generally it’s five syllables/seven/five

  22. 9symphony9 says:

    Nice blue colors there.

  23. I wonder at times if such superlatively beautiful places really exist or if it’s just photoshop …

  24. They do! They do!

    I HAVE seen water that blue upon white crystal sands, and palms that tango with the breeze and multi-colored fish playing hide-and-seek among the corals…

  25. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain … Time to die.

    PS: I’m sorry, that quote was the first thing that came to mind. XD My brains been doing quite a bit of free-assiocation lately. :p

    *sigh* I was so in love with a young Rutger Hauer.

  28. Your words are lovely
    The sentiment is mine too
    Oh koo koo ka choo ;-)

  29. Snot! That was a reply to TOJ!

  30. True story: startled
    Whilst snorkelling by sea turtle/
    Sad bald alien.

  31. Oops, you have six syllables on line 1.
