Black Beauty
Black like a rare diamond.
Perfectly sculpted.
White as a snowy peek .
Reflecting off the glistening waves.
Your beauty and grace challenge us.
Mostly free, we morn for your captured brothers.
Gliding and leaping through the blue.
Chasing your soul mates protecting your tribe.
Your song is...Read More

Womb Of Gaia
Womb of Gaia, 
uterine fluids rocking
offspring;
shore drinks
thirst is quenched
by Mother’s milk.

swaying boat,
the gulls cry,
as womb waters 
whisper.

Salty spray
from a passing orca
hisses past and I am awed
at my sibling’s 
graceful, 
breaching beauty.

Turquoise sky
casts it’s hue upon
silvery waters,

Premium Member Orca Saves Poseidon
Lightning illuminated who orca saved
It was Poseidon of course
Lean, tanned, muscular, god of the sea
The lesser gods shook with envy
and the sea goddess smiled, 
hoping they might be his 
chosen tonight.

The azure skies were pleased as was
the black of the...Read More

Listen, my dears, and I'll tell you a tale
Of a princess, a pirate, and glory.
There's a shipwreck, a rescue,
A romance, a ransom,
And a handicapped whale in the story.

There once was a princess, fairest of all,
But also quite vain and spoiled...Read More

Setting Lolita free
Lolita is an endangered southern Orca being

"Ha! You silly old cetacean ..." cried Fat Seal on his berg ...

"There's NO such thing as climate change!"

Drools of the night
I dive, as an enraged orca, in the depths of the silent night
I dive, merely to cool my fumes,
Hoping, that by doing so,
The pain shall leave me and fly, as a dandelion
Free, in the open sky, till it shall get...Read More

The tortoise - 
Hides her eggs in the sand
Hoping the newborn find their way to the sea

The hummingbird -
Swift fluttering wings
Disguising its iridescent breast that very few have seen

The jellyfish -
Deadly stretched-out tentacles
Guiding a beautifully translucent body along its path

More human than humans
I stood at vantage point on a hill and watched,
non-humans behave humanly- amazing it was!
Rats in their social life play, wrestle, giggle
and engage in mock tags of war
Otters giggle with each other and laugh heartily
Orca whales have ritual greetings in...Read More

To my city

While I laid there in the dark

Plus stay alive
Then learn how to chase a shark

All is still in deceptions abyss,
Beneath fathoms deep, aquatic,
Wolves are on the hunt.
Stealth predators unseen, unheard,
Hanging on the fringe of detections,
Outer limits.
In plain black and white,
Behold a deadly beauty personified,
Intelligence next step in evolution.

A dance of elegance they leap
