"Deep Encounter" by William Rotsaert
Acrylic on Board, size 16"x16"
A dangerous animal swam among sea anemones, squids and octopuses, corals and crustaceans, through kelp and seagrass, algae and seaweed.
Schools of sardines rushed swiftly out of sight.
When the deadly being reached the sunlight zone,
a shark stayed in the dark safety of the deep.
Encounter avoided, the big fish stayed alive. (WR)
