  1. A good message and I love the rhythm as I read. A little like gentle waves against the coral. I remember many years ago when I flew to Bermuda the bright red coral in the deep turquoise water as the plane was coming down to land. That was also the first time I ever saw a palm tree. It was amazing. It would be a shame to lose that.

    1. Oh wow. Thanks, glad to hear how the poem affected you Diane. I am glad it caused you to have that nice memory of the Coral.
      But, we are losing the beautiful Coral, the Great Barrier Reef especially. It’s very sad.
