Like Thousands Of Pearls

Today’s mystery object is some sort of disc coral I think (David Attenborough fail moment!), espied in a Malaysian aquarium a few years ago.

Whatever it is, I know what it looks like to me.

A platter of pearls.

Thousands of ’em.

In rows.

Like soldiers.

Glistening repetition.

Mind bending submerged treasure.

Sunken stars.

And I’m away, dreaming …

But you didn’t come here for a marine biology lecture,did you ?
