Sargassum Fish in acrylic by AVR circa 2002

Strange this living world, if you wish;
fish to Sargassum, Sargassum to fish;
if evolution is by fusion
toward unification and peace,
where lies fission,
key to diversification?

There would be more fossils
than the present living,
extinguished before their time,
unfit by Darwinian rule -
unless the past had little left
the proof of the whole.

And here before our eyes: the link
of time past and present,
of fossil and the living,
changing, too nil, too slow;
wondering at Nature's game,
in her own sweet time.~
