Green Sea Turtle Lilly

Aloha poets,
                        Lilly pond and red tropical fish inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Green Sea Turtles  

Technically colorful, these toxins of ours 
Rainbow sheen, blue-green to the shores 
Teardrop-shaped in hues of true feelings 
Day 63 oil sea, sloshings and reelings  

Our hand of trust needs now to extend 
Green Sea Turtles swim around the bend  
Last seen headed east across Gulf's oily waters 
Will they live to see our sons and daughters?  

Hides and seeks in a Sargasso sheen 
Dines on a seagrass of black gasoline 
Dark paddle flippers glide and trudge 
Joins in the fight against BP sludge
