marine life - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Poetry of words can never bring to the heart and soul what images of the marine life can do in one heartbeat.
They who colonised the land, who evolved from the sea, took from the oceans as if it mattered not if other big mammals, their relatives in creation, died or thrived. The marine life needed their land-dwelling brethren to take on the responsibilities of protection such kinship brings.
Within the ocean lived a world apart yet so dependant upon the terrestrial beings, to thrive or to become a saline dessert was not in their hands. The marine life needed the empathy of those who had for so long only seen them as food or a good day-trip to some aquarium.
If I close my eyes I can feel my long ago evolutionary tribe of the oceans, the song of the whales, the empathy of the dolphin, the love of swimming in the brine.
The song of the whales, the dance of the kelp, the rich diversity of marine life - it completes my soul in a way I had never realised needed completing before.
Forty six percent, almost half, of all sea plastics is old fishing gear. This gear is designed to kill marine life. We need to talk about this. There is no safe way to fish and protect dolphins, whales and sharks either. The labels are lies. It's all nuts, but we gotta save them, both because it is the right thing to do and it is the only way to save ourselves. Bottom line, plastic bags are bad, fishing net waste is worse. Vegan, anyone? I haven't been, but I've been heading that way and I think it's time to make that leap.
