Was diving off of Grand Turk and took this picture of a Sting Ray. Turned out quite interesting...

Soaring on wings that cannot fly

scouring the sand for life

drifting over beds where treasues lie

living below the worldly strife


The gentle undulation of sturdy wings

in grace beyond mere mortals

the joy of spirit within sings

with this glimpse of other portals


With colors of grey, or blue or green

the angels of the deep

glide stately by when they are seen

giving memories to keep

Awesome write, Michael. Stingrays are incredible creatures. While in Punta Cana in April this year, we had an opportunity to swim with stingrays and actually interact with them. Of course their quills were removed, and it was in a controlled environment; but nevertheless an amazing experience.

Been down there with the likes of these, on tanks, never wanted to get close to one at all. Read about a woman who swam over the top of one back in the 70's, took a barb through the heart, instant death for her! Two days ago Stevo took the same fate, and though they are one of God's majestic creations, right now I hate them!!
Beautifully written.

These creatures are true poetry in motion. Thanks for sharing this with those of us who don't dive and will probably never see such a wonder in their natural environment.

This is the latest manifestation of two poet's collaborative/writing efforts. The result is rich modern poetry with thematic diversity from romance to philosophical interpretations..
