Morgowles of New Lynsmouth

Morgowles, Smugairle-roin, Slefren-for, Medusa, jellied-fish reeling, floating in on the waves of the tides of the salt-splashing sea.  Flotilla-armadas of comb-jellies, By-The-Wind-Sailors and Rhizostoma pulmo – Root-Mouth Lung – the gelatinous barrel of epithelium.  They pulse their way towards us in pullulating wave upon wave – sea-jellies, transparent, rubbery hard-jellies, atavistic 600,000,000 year old jellies.  Jellies bent on havoc.  Into our peaceful harbour at New Lynsmouth they slopped, pulsated and glopped, an alien phylum, pre-dating the Human by unfathomable aeons and vast, dark gulphs of yawning primal time.  Predators now, they had come for what was theirs – the world ! ! !

The Invertebrate Press presents Morgowles, Smugairle-roin and inexplicable perplexities in old New Lynsmouth.

Morgowles,  Smugairle-roin, Slefren for,  most eldritch and unrelishable creatures that they are – the Medusa or Jellyfish.
New Lynsmouth towne was little expecting a pulsing, slithering, pullulating, gelatinous flotilla of Cnidaria to come wobbling and a-quiverin’ up the slipway and into the shops and houses of the wharf-side district, but that’s what happened.  Stark slick glossy resilient epithelium envelopes of entropy and elegance – the jellies that swarmed in from the sea.  Atavistic remote sinister beautiful rippling umbrellas of glasrudh blubber transparency – comb-jellies and primitive sea-squirts and cucumbers, drifting this way on the tide.  

Kingdom:  Animalia;  Phylum:  Cnidaria;  Class:  Scyphozoa;  Order:   Rhizostomatidae;  Genus:  Rhizostoma;  Species:   Rhizostoma pulmo.   (Macri,  1778)    

The slithering forms of the smuggled ruins of the morgue-owls.

A Forest Life

Twenty years in the forest –
watching trees grow –
watching trees fall down –
What have I learned from this?
That trees grow up –
That trees fall down.

   *          *          *

Blazing in the sun –
white glare off the grass blasts the eye.
Green light off the sun beams the sea.
Light through leaf and light through green –
The beetle shuffles.
Sing birds your chirpers to the sea’s boiling roar –
Drowning sunbeam’s silent rush through space.

   *          *          *

Chiff-chaff a chatterjack crackle -
Crow scaw a roeking mock in black –
Buzzy bumble a bee go gathering.
Leaf’s banner’s spread and Spring declared.
