No religion should be without a book of gospels. The Cephalopod bible would include the following books: Old testament first.

Practicus 1:1-1
And the book is delivered to him that is not well salted, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not well seasoned.

1:1-2 I gave you brains, the ability to reason, and free will for a reason. Please use them.

Aphrodite:1-1-1 The shore submits to the surf and prospers until there are too many waves and it becomes a wall to fall beneath the sea. In grief at what she has done these heavier sands of the seas are slowly returned.

1:1-2 My domain occupies two-thirds of a world made for man – who has no gills.

Anomous 1:1-1
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast;
He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the Dear God who loveth us
He made and loveth all.

Fin Francis 1:1-1
“Little things that run and quail and die in silence and despair.
little things that fight and fail and fall on earth and sea and air.
All trapped and frightened little things, the mouse, the rabbit – hear our prayer. As we forgive those done to us, the lamb, the tiniest bird Forgive us all our trespasses, little creatures everywhere.”

1:1-2 As ye have done unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”

New Testament:octihuman
 Baleen:1:1 Those who deny the lord of the depths; will face a great flood that shall destroy the land and the sanctuary of man; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and a great shaking unto the end of the time and desolation’s of great sorrow.
1:1-2 Not forgiven shall be the exploitation of the firmament I have created. Your dominion is to respect the earth and seas, and thee shall pass it on to the children as you have received.
1-1-3 In my eight tentacles I support the firmament … A world that is interconnected to all … We may feed upon each other but never war … and is supported by the the freedom to fly, swim or run … prayers of the righteous are good, but actions speak more loudly. Without grasping and protecting what has been given to you it is nothing. Endings are open doors chopping off what’s incomplete and saying: ‘Now, it’s complete because it’s ended here.’

Dunes 1:1-1 by Saint ― Frank Herbert “I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

1:1-2 “Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.”

 Fluke 1:1-1 t is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea–whether it is to sail or to watch it–we are going back from whence we came. John F. Kennedy

 Humpback 1:1-1 For the spreading of abominations such as the NSA, Google, Facebook HE shall make the Internet desolate until the consummation, these shall be no more!
1:1-2 Murky depths clouds observation. Rise to the sky and leap into the air to taste all my dominions.  By leaping into that place you will find me.

Kelp  1:1-1

Levity 1:1:1 If you don’t crack the shell, you can’t eat the mussel.
1:1-2 Don’t take life too seriously; you’re not getting out alive, and If you find yourself drowning, the first thing to do is to stop swimming down into the abyss.

Shark 1:1-1  If you are at the top of the food chain you may be lonely, but you eat better.

“Can ye fathom the ocean, dark and deep, where the mighty waves and the grandeur sweep?”Fanny Crosby

Often forgot is that these religions had a lot of poetry in them. My ‘Driftwoods’ fits into this theme. Pt1.  Pt2. Please send feedback and I will credit or provide links to your offerings.
