Singapore’s Jewels

Hairy crab

The sun shines bright.
Where are we?
Where ash is buried.
Two islands joined to make
Singapore’s only landfill.

Bedford's flatworm

A treasure chest,
Which no pirate has seen.
Not even Blackbeard could find it.


A goby, a crab.
Sea stars and anemones,
Marvellous and precious.

Fan worm

A fan worm, a noble volute,
Cowries and nudibranchs.
Beautiful and weird.

Noble volute

A heron’s call,
Her home beckons,
Little darlings await.


The sun is setting,
Setting on the island,
Shining on the jewels.
The jewels of Semakau.
The jewels of Singapore.
