In the Land of Algae: Photo Poem 40

Algae at Johnston Lake: Photo by Noelle

In the Land of Algae grows dragonfly larvae and tadpole eggs. A curious place of varied greens and swirling motes that build grasshopper an island. In the Land of Algae is the home of the skating water bug, fat belly and spindly legs, skipping over oxygen bubbles and landing in dark mud, seeping from delicious decay. In the Land of Algae is a planet unknown, as Mars and Jupiter, but so much closer to home.

  1. As the poet said: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Noelle, you certainly have an eye for beauty. Wonderful colours.
