Poem Title:  Mangrove

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  John Blight

Poet Biography: 
John Blight (1913-1995) was an Australian Poet

I saw its periscope in the tide;
its torpedo-seed seeking the soft side
of the island, the grey mud-bank.
And, where it touched, it seemed the land sank
with its tree exploding from water; the green
mangroves' fountainhead of leaves bursting, seen
like a mushroom-top of detritus and spray.
Today, in my boat, at the close end of the bay,
I saw its dark devastations; islet and spit
sunk in the flat high tide. Where these war-seeds it,
gaps of horizon and sea; then trees
