Poetry and henna

Did some Surrealist poetry and got henna tattoos at the library.

New poem

Humpback whale,
you are a mystery
of the sea.

You sing sweet songs by the bay,
each and every day.
You spout to greet,
and leap gracefully into the air,
then breach,
and crash,
onto the sea.
Your pounding fluke
makes the waves and ocean white with foam.

Who taught you these things?
Who taught you how to sing?

Your haunting melodies
float across the sea
and echo back to me.

Humpback whale,
you are a beautiful mystery
to see.
