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
