The piston shrimps load snap©RedCat
The stingrays electric zap
Such wonders beneath the sea
Wonders that will die out before all are seen
Moray eels in their holes
Fish dancing in big shoals
Who will translate their song
When the great whales are all gone
Corals in every rainbow bow hue
Flatfish waiting patiently for its due
Who will care about dolphin chatter
When money and power is all that matters
Shellfish doing the cleanup
Fluorescent yellow fish to sun up
From the sea came alive to this lands
Now it’s dying by humanity’s hands
Deep Sea creatures with their own light
Stingrays looking like flying kites
We have forgotten the seas bountiful gifts
How the Songs of the Sea our souls uplift
This blue whale painting by Kerfe Roig took my breath away. I fell deep in to the eye of the whale and heard a mournful song.
To see all artwork and read all poetry for today go to The Wombwell warrior.
