An Oceanic Poem

Whale, (Sketchbook 2020), acrylic & biro on watercolour paper, © N Nazir 2021

She-whale, do I know you?
Why do you keep calling me?
I only know that I love you
and I hear your song in my dreams.

You cruise the planet with ease
bend particles
make fool of gravity
as you flip over and over
your mysteries 
unknown to my species.

If I tether my soul to yours
would you take me on a trip 
to the underworld
a pleasure spree of adventure?
When you call
I feel myself slipping under…

“Whales in the sea, God’s voice obey.” – N. E. Primer (Moby Dick, Herman Melville)

  1. Hey, Sunra. You asked her a good question. Would you be kind to tell me what she replied to you? I really want to know. I too, would love to make such an underworld trip. Perhaps I’ll tag along with you if her answer was positive. hehe. Thanks, beforehand, Sunra. You rock! I wish you miracles.

    1. Thank you so much, Kitty! Both for your kind comment and for letting me know as I had no idea! I checked the other day and it wasn’t on there so I assumed it didn’t get in. So that’s made my day, thank you ☀️💛
