Coral Reef Deforestation
When the sea rises and buries the shoals and sandbars,
the sea grass and coral reef;
when the sun bears hard on the fringes of sea and land,
requiem hums eerie and grief.
Oh, Art - what gift do you bring in suffering and lament,
but catharsis however brief.
When the wind hot and dry sweeps over hills and mountains
all day long, freezing cold in the night;
and rain after a long absence brings gales and hurricanes;
the landscape turns into a pitiful sight.
What movement can a artist recall in the long history of art?
too far out romanticism and classicism;
realism lost to the lens, impressionism to varied abstract art -
welcome Dali-Miro'-Ernst surrealism. ~
