Challenge from Susie Morice: write a poem about a piece of art, capturing its light, colors, mood and message.

Manatees 
In muted tones of warm shallows
with streams of light filtering through
the branches of underwater playgrounds,
Mom leads her calves
through a watery wonderland
teeming with life. 
Playful, gentle creatures,
sea cows know
the health of their water
by the diversity of its life.
