Letter To A Killer Whale II


Orca, my dear companion,
The sunlight shines on my skin
But darkness still surrounds me
Each dreadful moment I spend
In this suburban landscape
Is drowning me in shadow

Suffocating in sorrow
With so very few journeys
Into wilderness of late
Have I forgotten the sound
Of tides pounding the shore
And the taste of salty air?

Killer Whale, I am sinking,
Drowning in my own anguish,
Miles away from the ocean
Miles away from elegance
What a tragedy it is
To be drowning on dry land

Will you serenade my soul
And remind me of the depths
Of all the marine wildlife
That have occupied the seas
For millions of years before
Mankind tasted his first breath?

How does the cool water feel
Upon your black and white skin?
How does the sea salt affect
The taste of your sustenance?
How far into the abyss
Have you descended with kin?

Orca, wildest companion,
Remind me of the ocean
I am thirsty for new life
And I strain to hear your voice
Expecting God's poetry
To ebb and flow through your words

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
