Sea Turtles and Death
I imagine death should be like
A gentle Great Barrier Reef sea turtle
Diving into azure clear water
Then islands of souls
Of bleached white coral
Then an awful, awful descent down
The bottom of the sea
Towards the blue coral forest
Now a big shiny black fish
Is...Read More

Leatherback, murray river, matama
Hawksbill, common musk and spiny soft shell.
Loggerhead, Atlantic green, alligator snapping
Turtles are we, in every country we dwell.

The largest sea turtle reaches eight hundred pounds.
A leatherback whose love for jellyfish abounds.
Alligator snapping is one fourth of leatherback’s...Read More

Snotty haughty sea turtle.
Stuck up
Barely speaking to other sea creatures
Much ado about nothing

Snotty haughty sea turtle
Mean to others
For decades
Now trying to pretend you are not haughty?

Snotty haughty sea turtle
Waving now
Pretending you have a heart
Might as well go back into your...Read More

Platoon magic legion
beautiful, graceful escorts
leading the way
hear their call, silently swishing
dorsal fins
cutting through the 
fall-out murky pall,
they need no 
blood and guts Burley, 
their seas are pristine
watch their mute scene
unfurling, they are calling
to her

Premium Member Constanza for a Loggerhead
The sand is swept with gleams of light,
pale moonbeams burst where wavelets crest
about sea turtles seeking nest.

Soft seas are flat and calm tonight
beneath the light of stars; on land
she digs an egg womb out of sand.

Before impending winds take flight

Unforgettable Paradise
Life is so different in the islands

Slow moving beauty beyond just the earth

Wailing  waves climb like a roller coaster, pleading for surfers

On the North Shore, time is irrelevant

Love is easy on Turtle Bay…Now that he is gone

My heart feels a...Read More

Beyond The Breakers
To the naked eye all you can see,
is the breakers coming ashore individually,
but as I dive in one of them and start to tread,
my imagination starts to fill me with dread,

Wondering whats lurking out in the ocean,

Spanish moss draping old oaks
Sea bird sanctuaries with lookout platforms

The Boy Who Swallowed The Sea
I once had a friend
who swallowed the sea,
with a thirst so great
it was awesome to see.

Gulping down water,
in large mouthfuls he drank.
Then into the sea,
I was pushed and I sank!

Sitting on a sea turtle,
I yelled up, "Please stop!
I'm sorry I...Read More

with thanks to the Environmental Defense Fund:

Advice from a permacultural ecosystemic:


Dive into life;
Avoid undiving into dying, stagnating in reverse-time ruminations.

Appreciate days;
Depreciate decomposing night-dreams.

Take long walks
off short deductive pathways.

Stand together;
Avoid falling apart.

Go extra cooperative miles
rather than unseemly monopolistic piles
of non-investment in...Read More

My love, please take me back
To your sweet sugar shack 
Sitting on the soft sand beach
Paradise is within reach

Briny air, wafting steamy

Swaying grass skirt, my delight

I am nothing...nothing...nothing
I am nothing but human

I can't whistle, perform great feats of strength

Waiting for the Sunrise

We talk...Read More

 Tiny sea turtle; creeps its way across white beach sands to sea.
Newly hatched reptile, learning to swim into his new life; he’s free.
One day, he will grow into a very fine loggerhead.

Green Sea Turtle
The sea unleashes its children green 
seeking a sandy shielded defense and 
swimming wings for legs, scraping 
their way from seaweed waters at low 
tide the sea awakens...

Those crusted, frothy shells demand
their way toward the grasses as destiny 
calls. Barely...Read More

My green sea turtle
wonderful slick shell,
Brown and golden, the color of a shell.
That perfect shaped shell.
The shell of my turtle i know too well.

You are the greenest.
The most bravest.
And fastest (i think)
And maybe the smartest too.

You slick and slide,
And glide on by,

Human villainy is a cause for alarm
It causes much environmental harm

If the sea turtle should become extinct
To deliberate human acts it is linked

Then their offspring are far...Read More
