Whale-52



The pitch of sound wailing in the depths of the sea,
Rambles around waiting for a light,
All I see is blue vast ocean
I hear no one but only my pitch.
Will I ever shine on this endless dejection?

Thee can not see my shadow,
in the abyss of sorrow, isolated by the darkness
Calling once again as I can feel the salt rubbing into my scrape—
Counting the stars above the night sky
Dazzled by the rays of sunlight—
when will someone intone with me?

About this poem

The loneliest whale in the world who seeks to be found yet never been seen. The whining sound is the only sign of its presence.
