Three arty things happened today… I finished my shark painting and photographed it. You can buy the original here.
Then I wrote a poem:
“Ode to Shark”
Fierce creature of deep water home
Show me your strength and grace
While you roam as bottom-feed-water-filter
Reminding me of sovereignty
In SPITE of shark-fin-hunter-zone.
Sleek creature with wide open mouth
Show me your fins and teeth
I see your shout, that voice of dissent
Against corptocracy, profit over humanity,
In the same hunter’s boat… you and me.
Exploited creature of beauty and speed,
Continue to bite, fight, shine your light,
Where men have failed to heed the balance in all of Gaia’s life
In the face of cruel, sad greed.
THEN, I spontaneously read it on a video. My expression through the shark seems to just keep going…. xxoo Yabette
PS: Stop killing sharks!
