Not exactly the type of turtle I had in mind, but a very nice illustration. I think I should lay off the plastic, as this is the second poem in the last few months dealing with that material, but there’s just a lot of it about!

Sorry for recent silence here. Hopefully things are picking up again. (To use a vaguely plastic sounding metaphor.)

  1. This wee poem is an wakeup call. The thought of a turtle drowning in plastic is so horrific! However,The illustration is truly beautiful.

  2. A… wakeup call 🙂

      Thank you, Helen. I think they mostly die from eating plastic, which they think is squid.

      Old Book Illustrations is a great resource for bloggers!
