Paintings and Verses by Dr Abe V Rotor
Speleology and tourism, what a combination;
though both exploit the secrets of the past,
trace the beginning of human's civilization,
and Plato's allegory of the escaped outcast.
Linnaeus, if alive today, would wonder,
how he missed in his study
organisms posthumously emerged
from science and technology.
Coral reef of deceiving beauty,
red for warning, black for death;
white as skeleton; blue-green,
invasion of the primitive scum
that once ruled the early earth.
If you can decipher what life forms these are,
you must be an artist, like Picasso or Matisse,
masters of abstract art - not the ideal, the real,
the form and order of God's creation remiss
