Written by: Carl Rakosi | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 Eastern Sea, 100 fathoms, 
green sand, pebbles, 
broken shells.
Off Suno Saki, 60 fathoms, gray sand, pebbles, bubbles rising.
Plasma-bearer and slow- motion benthos! The fishery vessel Ion drops anchor here collecting plankton smears and fauna.
Plasma-bearer, visible sea purge, sponge and kelpleaf.
Halicystus the Sea Bottle resembles emeralds and is the largest cell in the world.
Young sea horse Hippocampus twenty minutes old, nobody has ever seen this marine freak blink.
It radiates on terminal vertebra a comb of twenty upright spines and curls its rocky tail.
Saltflush lobster bull encrusted swims backwards from the rock.
