Behemoth Poem by Sara Fielder


Tranquility washes over me in sonic waves
The wind is light as it pushes the sails
on a broad reach thirty five miles offshore
at a slow, but steady five knots
I spy the beast as he expels
his briny breath at the surface
P
F
O
O
S
H
and spray explodes!
Mine eyes have struck a rare sight to behold!
I watch his black back rise and fall
upon this watery wasteland
Forgetting fear, I am enthralled
from the safety of my vessel
He
S
O

S
dis appearing into the abyss
but I sense something amiss
when then I catch him from the corner of my eye
ten
feet
away
before diving beneath the keel
My heart is pounding in my ears
and I am not sure what to feel
Panic?
He surfaces once more and I am blasted
by his pfooshy misted kiss
And blinking one grey omniscient eye
he says goodbye
So long, curious cetaceous friend
I've cheated death again!
