Uncover the Sun

Whales

 

Blue navy waves

with white caps

and whales

greeting the clouds

with a blow and a spout

then a gray dive deep

 

Do you hear them, singing

songs of migration,

already ancient when the world

was fresh and the water

clear and salty

and certain

 

A whole concert

of hellos, welcoming

the newly born,

and a resonant keening

to mourn all those

who’ve sunk to the sand

 

With echoing calls of sorrow

and wonderment

at the surface songs

of humanity,

whose vain glory

blares loudly how great they art

 

Rough waves, and whales

dying to find cool waters

and always singing

for love of the sea,

their vast hearts full

of silence and sound
