Celebrating World Oceans Day! "Planet Ocean: Tides are Changing"

We imagine.

We depict.

That the earth is green.

We are not wrong.

For all the years,

that

Is what the maps have drawn our attention to.

In reality

The blue

Is

As significant as the green

Even in the maps and images of earth.

Ebbing and flowing.

Swishing and swooshing .

The sound of the tides.

The waters give us life. The waters sustain us.

From the waters we find life.

From the waters we find our food.

From the waters we find peace.

From the waters we find calm.

Ebbing and flowing.

Swishing and swooshing .

The sound of the tides.

I eat my chips.

You drink your cooldrink

with a plastic straw.

We don’t recycle.

Or throw away our packets and straws, lollipop sticks.

We sprinkle it on the ground.

We don’t see anything wrong with that.

Look,

There it all goes.

Into the ocean.

We didn’t even have our snacks and drink at the beach.

But,

Out of sight.

Out of mind.

Oh, I am sick.

I ate microplastics and chips for supper.

The fish ate my chip packet.

So, I ate the chip packet.

I am not meant to eat plastics.

The turtles are dying.

The turtle thought he was eating a jelly fish.

But he ate the see-through bag from pick ‘n pay.

The bag we didn’t recycle or say no to at the till.

He isn’t meant to eat plastics.

The ocean isn’t as it once was.

The animals are dying.

The ecosystems are being destroyed.

The tides are changing.

I listened to the tides.

No longer at peace.

No longer calm.

I listen.

Planet Ocean.

It tells me to

Stop

Littering. Anything.

The plastics we must

Refuse.

Avoid.

Reduce.

Reuse.

Recycle.

The plastics have changed what once was perfect.

The plastics have destroyed ecosystems.

The plastics destroy ecosystems.

The plastics

Not alone

but significantly so

destroy planet blue.

So

I

Refuse

Avoid

Reduce

Reuse

Recycle

My plastics

The tide can change

back

if I change my actions,

if I start today.

Planet Ocean:

Tides are Changing!
