Save the Water Save the World

by Dominique Galiano, USA

Once,
years past,
white seashells
beaded blonde shores.
Sand lines harmonized
suntans and ocean spray.
Elegant blue filaments
stung playful wet paws, young children
surrendered to the shored Man O War.
Now, coastal beaches become plastic dumps
as mermaids lure sea dog pirates to play.
Sirens charm sailors with their love song
now dwell cross the bottom unfreed.
Watery darkness shines life,
luminesce fires swim deep,
stars edge sea canyons
as oiled waters
seize islands,
pristine,
once.
