Sea Slugs

This world — we’ll never see the end of it.

So much beauty, above and below.

And just when you thought you’d seen it all,

up pops the Photographic Exhibition on Sea Slugs.

Slugs! The very name invites disdain, derision.

But these are something else: an artificer’s folly,

a frolic of design and colour, of quirky geometries

and improbable beauty — and there are 3000 varieties!

What practical use, what purpose, if not to delight?

Later I trawled through the depths of the web and emerged

staggering, reeling ; & that strange word, ‘nudibranch’

  1. Wow…this is wonderful. Not only did I think there was just one slug, now I know there are 3000! I absolutely love the lines,

    But these are something else: an artificerโ€™s folly,

    a frolic of design and colour, of quirky geometries

    and improbable beauty

    This is fantastic John!
