Not just a photo --
this brown pelican dies
in my heart

(AW, June 2010)

A catastrophe! A desaster! Oil spill 2010.

So sad really. And evyryone of us are guilty. I myself burned 260 ltrs of 95 octane when visited Northern Norway.

(In my "former life" I served onboard Finnish Oil Company's oiltankers; carried crued oil from Russia, from Saudi, asphalt from Venezuela etc.)

Thank you so much for your comments!

It's a world-catastrophe and I can't understand why tv and newspapers (Europe) don't report more about this tragedy.

Very nice haiku, but sad about it.
