Bob Marley and the Shark

You would think seeing a shark even if he is not as big as yourself would be scary. After all there are teeth and speed, and muscles. 1,5m is not tiny either. The pic is not of the shark that came close, still have to go through more footage.

The Shark

I hover over the big drop
I know THE BIG DROP!!!
So many colours so busy
My background sound: crunching
Fish nibbling on the reef
A shadow suddenly takes form
A black tip reef shark floats by
Too close for comfort
He sees me: unperturbed
There is no aggression
No anger
No urgency
He is on island time
He looks as if he is humming a Bob Marley song in his head
‘No women no cry’ brother
