The weather all day has been one big rumble. There is a weather front coming through and the lightening and thunder are unreal. I’ve been writing all day with the window open looking out at the sky.
The Academy of American Poets has compiled a list of poems in honor of Shark Week on the Discovery channel. I love Shark Week, and I love that the academy is branching out into other areas.
Described by poets as “death-scenting,” with “lipless jaws” and “eyes that stare at nothing, like the dead,” sharks have long served as a cultural symbol of mortality and looming danger. Despite the fact that sharks kill fewer than 20 people a year, their reputation as the ocean’s deadliest predator continues to inspire fear and fascination throughout the world.
