Whale Song

Blue whales, old Homers of the seas
with epics and mythologies,
ascend from depths and histories
to breach and breathe their ancient rhyme,
invoking muses lost to time
to narrate tales beneath the tide.

At moments, sorrows seem to rise
from the oceans of their eyes,
but then they soar up toward the skies
- what quests and ages they must know!
Their song continues long and slow,
the waves, their pages, where they flow.
