Whale love song

 

Ira dips their feet at the end
of a wide and terrible fin.

So the men say in dim and low surroundings.

Ira swims and bathes with their friend
in the wide and terrible blue.

 

“I love you” comes a high rumble,
and softer still “I love you too”,

whispers Ira in a contented reply.

And they part to swim again soon,
where the dark water meets the moon.

 

-wind-

 

Ira dreams of a broken reef,
and the whale that swims off into.

The breeze cold off the shore, they sit straight awake.

And softer still “I will love you”,
emanates from deep within them.

 

To hold gaze over horizon,
Ira pulls their weight toward the whale.

“I dreamt you left, and the sun followed you there,

and I feel guilty for this thought.”
Water sliding cooly along.

 

-wind-

 

“I love you” comes a high rumble,
and softer still “I love you too”,

whispers Ira if not a little worried.

And they part to swim again soon,
where the dark water meets the moon.

 

Ira grows into space and song.
The whale learns a new kind of pitch.

They swim and bathe in almost every way,

they used to as they collected;
their way a weighted meander.

 

-wind-

 

Ira grows and learns to move on.
The whale sings a different song.

The men feel vindicated for calling it,

“The greatest love between two souls”.
and still at night heard from the shores-

 

“I love you” comes a high rumble,
and softer still “I love you too”,

as if the wind a humble and quiet note,

lulls those who bathe and know that soon,
the dark water will meet the moon.

-wind-
