“Save the Coral”watercolor painting by Leona J. Atkinson 2019
Oh so far away
A precious gift is dying
Bleaching is taking
It’s beautiful color
As sediments smother
And chemicals cause harm
Coral Reefs need help
What can we possibly do
To help save the Coral?
Everyone can help—here’s how:
There are many organizations that are working to save the Coral Reefs.

Prayers out sent to cover
Those its fury hath touched
Prayers sent up to gather
And bring winds of change
Turning the path’s course
To remain at sea
Prayers for those in the Bahamas who are facing the destruction of Dorian’s wrath at this time.
Praying it’s fury will be lessened and it’s path turned out to sea so it will not make landfall anywhere else.
High upon a rock
Above the craggy shore
Shined a beacon
A guiding light in the night
Kept lit by the hand
Of a watchman of the sea
With tides of time
Waves of change came, yet
Lonely lighthouse stands

Pacific Ocean 2018 at Oceanside,Oregon
Gulls cry above.
Waves softly rolling,
Covering footprints in the sand.
Sights and sounds delight weary soul,
#MayFalls19 Poetry Challenge Prompt: sea breeze

Dressed up for winter
Mrs. Jack Frost’s cloak imprinted with
Icy blue like lace
Trails across my window pane
Reminding me of ocean waves
For years of dedication
Oversees the sea
Andersons View Point in Tillamok County Oregon is a beautiful scenic roadside stop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. This place memorializes Billy Anderson who was a dedicated surveyor for Tillamok County for many years. His surveyor’s transit tripod still stands on the banks overlooking the sea.
It is a great roadside stop with fantastic views of the ocean.
