Billions of stars hovering above,
reflections dancing upon black waves,
coalescing heavens and ocean into one.
A world wrapped in stillness;
cradled between Pacific swells;
rising, falling gently like an endless lullaby.
A dark shape glides through the luminescent water,
huge flukes rising in a soft arch under the moonlight,
a blunt head surfacing as if to say good-bye,
before sliding beneath ripples,
to disappear into the deep blue void.
