My dictionary doesn't recognize "salten" [neither, I've just discovered, does my spell check) . I was just reading about the Salton Sea in California.

__Thanks Jan, the -plastic bag- in my sallow mind, severly degrades the natural world!

__Yes, Bill, the word 'salten' has never existed; I wrote 'salten' here, as a poetic-license 'sign' of thought.(semiotic?) Thanks Bill!

Beautiful partly, deadly for the most I agree so much damage is done to our sea world by choking to death those oh so precious mamals,keep saying it!

And turtles eat plastic bags, thinking eating jellyfish.

I remember as a child the game "what doesn't belong?"
Plastic always defracts beauty - sad...

This writing made me sad.
To see plastic in the bay, oceans or lakes takes away the beauty and those poor creatures that suffer when they eat the plastic is horrible.

Thanks for writing this even though it made me sad.

This is deep and compelling to read, Line 3 is sharp and serious as is the actual debris on the bay


Much love...

It's disheartening when trash ruins natural beauty. As always, D, a pure delight to read your words. Your choices are always sublime.

One day the youth of some era, when they read your poem, will ask 'what is that?' of the plastic bag and here your poem will have captured it for all time, with that beautiful contrast.

Nicely done .... Gina

hate to see litter in the ocean...

Janice said...

Watching the litter in the ocean on the satellite images is sickening. Plastic bags should be banned permanently.
