Premium Member Imagine a Dead World
Imagine if all the krill 
Beneath the ice shelves were dead.
Millions plus millions of krill
Fodder for ocean’s creatures:
Penguins, walrus, whales.
In the end all will die and the ocean
Will be a poorer place for all.

Imagine if all the trees 
Would lose...Read More

One glorious word that will stay

A Whale of a Diet


Said a hungry whale: “I could kill 
to eat something other than krill.
There must be other things to eat;
a change of diet would be a treat.
The human diet would suit me well;
it’s very varied, I hear tell.”
A pod of whales...Read More

How ideal to luxuriate

Seamen Shantey
Skinny-dipping with you is a thrill
For a man who is over the hill
But just one squiggly squirm
From a small dangling worm
And a fish will dart in for the kill!

Can swallow more than you...Read More

tsunami sex seen
quiet waves out at sea
deeply breathing in
sweeping out to shore

a frigate bird swells
a red neck sack hoping
to attract

a young buck
ruts and rattles
antlers with a tree

the earth shakes
a slight quake making
mounds ripple as if flesh

a slug barely seen
moving leaving
a slime trail...Read More

The King Reigns
Penguins are beautiful creatures
one of the most elegant is the king
second only to Emperor in size
stands up to 100cm an amazing thing

having appetite for lanternfish, squid and krill
so their average weight is so...Read More

The shrinking violet has made her way back
for another round of acidic attacks
blaming the sun for her shadows
and the mirror for her cracks-
The mad queen of monkeys, 
leading a gnashing troop
tossing stones and slinging poop
driving the flavor from the soup,.

Sipping time upon a sundial, awaiting her haloed quill
days cascading to decade to the reaper's willing krill
supreme word weaver, stroking looms endless dream
white satin muse seducing all with sprays of raven's ink
was your vanishing, simply a crowning of a masterpiece?

Every one hundred years or so,
enters a flower graced with golden glow.

A quilted warmth- unbending light, 
halo tempering the blackest nights.

Blessed with precious- magic quill,
wisdom prevails in her patina krill.

A muse whom skirted war and garnished peace,
traversed angry ocean to...Read More

I've got a dish of killifish
I wish to eat that silly fish
Baked, or fried in peanut oil
Roasted, dried, or let to boil.

Make me a star-gazy pie
Take me to the Catfish Fry
Lead me to the China Sea
Feed me hermit crabs and...Read More

An Atoms Tale Is Epic
If I die before tomorrow
Though the sun won't shine for me
Take pleasure in it's warming glow
There's a future there to see

No life will last forever
The sun will one day fail
But not before we've all passed on
So who will hear the...Read More

MONODON MONOCEROS
Have you ever been to the Arctic
and heard the "Tickling of the Ivories"?
That is the time when the Monodons
joust each other with their singular parries.

They have one thing in common...
A singular tooth that the males wear with pride.
They can swim,...Read More

THIS ONE TALL WHALE
This one
Tall whale
Squirts bad sperm
Marine girls beware
It will give you teratology
In your womb
Plant seeds
Of extinction
I can't breathe sea harks
Up the creek
Krill die
Evil. We cannot ride high
No high lands
Water everywhere
No water
Water is fiend

In dead-end streets.

Where can I go.
Following me like the black plague,
Droppings here and there for show.

Last Breath
LAST BREATH
by Mithiran Ravindran

Like a humungous fish,
I am made for the sea,
My fins go swish
My body weaves through the cascading waves
For the previously crystal-clear sea I crave
The currents of the ocean,
Go mad with pollution
I lie here on the land,
covering with...Read More
