Behemoth


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

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

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!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
