Jelly in the oh-so-deepMariana Trench, photographed by NOAA’s Okeanos Explorer; photo (c) NOAA

On Thanksgiving, we are reminded of how wondrous and life-sustaining our oceans are. We’re thankful for the world’s oceans and all their creatures and currents, miracles and mysteries.

Ethereal being
Made of jelly and light
Move through the deep sea’s everlasting night
With a pump and a swish and a beat of five hearts
The jellyfish
Is a work of fine art.
