Moon Jellyfish

Floating around the tank
at the whim of every current;
too small to fight back.
Such short arms compared
to their long-tentacled cousins,
looking so crumpled and useless.
Coloured and shaped
like it's namesake,
a small, delicate work
of nature.

This was taken at the Vancouver Aquarium, in the same room full of other jellyfish. Another picture of jellyfish can be found in "The Aliens From Our Planet"
