Meaningful Menagerie II

After a long evening of casting about and writing and rewriting lines that went nowhere, I have a draft of a small poem--Noctiluca scintillans.  

Noctiluca scintallans is among the loveliest of dinoflagellates, both in personal appearance and in effect. It is indeed part of the mysterious and meaningful menagerie that surrounds us all and of which we are too often unaware.
