A Turtle Enjoying Kuala Lumpur Sunset

Last Friday, while I was jogging at  Lake Park name  Ampang Hilir Lake  which  near my home.

I was listening on my Blackberry phone music,Morigasaki kaigan.

As we knew this song was written from our mentor Ikeda Sensei regarding friendship he treasure , the English translation I found online as follow:-

Morigasaki Beach 

With my friend by the shore
Pungent seaside smell
Waves withdrawing

Nineteen-year-old boys
Pondering what path to choose
Philosophical talk
As the hours go by

My friend troubled
Always so poor
“The way of Christ
Is the one I’ll follow!”
Eyes flashing keen in the moonlight –
To that firm heartbeat
The waves rolled in

On the crumbling embankment
Grasses grown thick
Voices of insects – what kind I don’t know
Tonight we shall fashion
Poems and songs?
Music with a tone
Of ancient court times?

But my friend stands silent
What way should I choose,
That my life may wing away
To far-off gardens of the moon?
He wipes away the tears, sighing

My friend in lonely sorrow
I too
But with one boundless aspiration:
Make a promise with me
We’ll face life
Whatever pain it brings!
My friend smiles
“I’ll go along with that!”

That far-off world
My friend is seeking –
A different one
But I too have my Way
A long song on a stage
That never ends
Till hair turns white,
Talking with the moon

I wish you all luck
My friend!
Next time we meet –
When will it be?
Wordless we depart
Upon our separate journeys
Silver waves sway gently


While listening to the song , I was enjoying my jog.

Suddenly I saw a turtle floating on a log , seems enjoying the sunset of Kuala Lumpur watching Petronas Twin Tower

 Or he knew I was listening to Morigasaki, want to say "Hello" to me ?

Without hesitation I took few pictures using my phone 

Really amazing, never forget this beautiful sight. Before I continue jogging, I thanks the little turtle and chanted  happiness  for this little turtle.

Amazing, Roger...how fortunate we are to be like the turtle on the log who has found the Lotus Sutra to give us peace and comfort in this life. You are so much in tune with the Universe and the Law. Always enjoy your posts.
