Jellyfish

Who has created this piece of art, so intricate and detailed?

Who took the time to form each delicate tentacle?

Who made this beautiful creature, so fragile yet so venomous?

With each breathtaking movement, as she drifts with the current,

With no brain, no heart, no blood,

How does she make ones heart stop, with a single touch?

Be careful, be careful

Don’t be fooled by the beauty

This creature may seem delicate

But beneath lies its poisonous sting

—At the Vancouver Aquarium.
