Hi Anil, thank you so very much for your kind complimentary words, my friend! I always find haiku writing to be very challenging; therefore, before I pen any haiku, I do review haiku written by the masters for guidance on the principles, especially about "haiku surprise." Have a very nice day! Pandita

I actually thought killing whales had been outlawed. If not, it ought to be. Sad poem, Pandita. Nice to see you again:)

Thank you, dear Daniel, for commenting on this piece! You are right - the International Whaling Commission banned commercial whaling over 30 years ago; but there are countries such as Iceland, Japan, and Norway (they use harpoon grenades that are supposed to kill whales "efficiently") that still support commercial whaling and seek to lift the ban. Have a good evening, my friend! Hugs. Pandita

Truly, my friend, - sometimes, unfortunately, we take one step forward and a couple backwards! Many people have no empathy for animals. Thank you for your kind comments, dear Jan. Love and hugs. Pandita

Zaynab, I appreciate your kind complimentary words, my friend! It is so appalling that in this day and age when there is so much outcry about taking care of the Earth and our natural resources, and there are still some people who continue to hunt whales and other endangered species for various reasons including profit and sport. It has to stop! Best regards! Pandita
