Surfing With White Whales

Surfing With White Whales

 

Today a heavy sky above the sea shimmers

From white washed black to emerald surfing

The matching torrents of deepening waters

Lost in the distance of a bated rains marauding

 

And countless pristine whales

Are breeching their pure white flanks

Diving with the wind by coastal funnels

Beneath the clouds in their grey and weighted ranks

 

Single beach line bird goes wheeling

As a forgotten song through the glooming light

With the white whales falling and rising

Disappearing out of sight

 

Out beyond the break wall and the harbour

The edge of the world defies belief

Darkly they roll for a century of murder

And a million white whales cruising beneath
