Sea Sparkle

Such a scintillating sight

has formed way out at sea;

something really magical,

a delight for you, for me.

But then we come to science

that water’s bloom

is explained as marine plankton

which makes me feel some gloom.

But does it really matter

for the sparkle, it’s still there

and whatever it is causing it

I really do not care.

It still will hold the magic

as it glitters in my sight;

a shiny bit of nature

that can’t fail to bring delight.

Did you really see those sea sparks over there? I only saw the photos of them, really beautiful indeed. I heard when you see it, you can make your dream come true. Like a shooting star.

No, not really. This came from a picture Windows put on my laptop. I'don't not heard of it before. I wish I'd known about the wishes...
Thanks, Derina.

Intriguing, Hully,
I recall cutting a photo of luminous sparkling phytoplankton seen glowing at night in a remote Welsh bay - out of the Telegraph. Your poem has brought it back to me! Shall we stand on the cliffs tonight, our faces braced against the chill wind, our hands clutched for safety, and find it? Thank you for the evocation, Hully! HJ
