Editor’s Note

Three billion years ago and more,
Life first stirred on the ocean floor.

From the earliest creatures in the deep,
To the mighty dinosaur and the busy bee,
The tiny hummingbird and the giant whale...
The tree of life paints this evolutionary tale.

Eggshells. Sand. Ridley hatchlings throng.
A dark night. Shhhh. The turtle song.

In Minerva we take a dive,
Observe corals coming back to life.
These underwater forests pink, purple, yellow,
Are not plants, but animals, did you know?
