It was a fine Sunday morning when I met you at the Sydney Circular Quay. The sky was bright, the clouds were white. The Sun was having fun of making everything anew. It was an early Summer when I thought I run into an old friend, a deja vu.

You stood in the crowd with a flute in your hands and waiting in the queue. Your dark blue eyes met mine, but  you shunned away when you properly thought I was thinking you were cute. But you shifted your eyes and met mine again, you found I was actually looking at your flute. Your eyes sparked with delight or fear which I could not break through. They turned into turquoise like the deep ocean blue. I saw you were longing for retuning home to your beloved sea. I smiled the way you smiled, immediately we were hooked.

'Are you also a whale that is trapped on the land?' I projected my question in a telepathic way. You returned with a message in my head, 'I am Cetus. I am here to bring you back with me to the endless blue sea, where I believe you used to belong to.'

I gladly nodded. You raised your hands and started to play your flute. I looked at your fingers danced on the sparkling silver tube, from it sang a beautiful melody that was the music of a whale. The music enchanted me and wrapped me around like a cuddling net. Like a lullaby, slowly, gently, I was sent back into the ocean and swam like a giant once again.
