    due to my ever present nerddom and my love of cephs that borders on a mental problem i have written a poem.

    Ceph

    The Nautilus so old, outdating all the rest
    A link to the past
    An echo
    Back
    And
    Back
    So beautiful so primal
    In their deep deep lair
    Is it Stupid?
    Or just withdrawn
    Intelligently pondering the meaning of life

    The Squid
    Like a rocket through the sea
    Shimmering clouds living their last days
    Tentacles tangle then their task is done
    Mysterious giants
    The kraken
    Growing from no where
    Or small like a bullet
    And fast as one too

    The Cuttlefish
    The middle child
    Not a fish at all
    Ten tentacles like its predecessor
    It’s colors flash brightly in a sea or in a tank
    As it happily hunts for food
    It’s fins flapping
    They are a hummingbird’s wings
    It levitates in one place
    So beautiful
    So alien

    The Octopus, the pinnacle
    The lord of the ocean
    Strong enough to kill a shark
    Smart enough to solve a puzzle
    Mysterious beauty intoxicates us
    It spins in a ballet of majesty
    It’s eight arms the spokes of a wheel.
    Disguising not only its color
    Its shape too
    It becomes a rock
    Or a plant

    The Cephalopod
    Mysterious
    Beautiful
    Intelligent
    God’s grace plays out.
