Poet-teacher Karen Lewis created a poem for the Fort Bragg Alleyway Murals Project. Each mural has a QA code that leads to the website where poems and artists' info are featured. The murals are livening up the community. Many murals feature marine and local biome elements, like "Harbor Seals" created by visual artist Nicola Beatts.
Summer sun illuminates icy seas
Where seals carry fire in their hearts
Each journey is painted with bubbles and kelp
Across an endless horizon of dreams
Oh, salty creatures of our planet—
May you swim forever
Around our blue planet, our bronze sun.
