For this week’s Haiku challenge, I chose a shot from our last scuba trip to St. Kitt’s. This gorgeous creature is now a menace to the reefs in the Caribbean. As a non-indigenous species (it hails from the South Pacific and was introduced to western waters from someone’s hobbyist aquarium in Florida), it has no predators and is breeding rapidly in that part of the world. Fortunately, even though the Lionfish is extremely poisonous, it moves very slowly. So a careful diver can avoid touching its dreaded dorsal spines.
I invite you to comment in Haiku – either about this shot or about your favorite vacation destination. Three lines – five syllables – seven syllables – five syllables. And have a great Sunday!
Angel’s wings give bitter pain
Do not tread on me
