Cloudshapes Day 16

Jane Dougherty Writes

This poem is inspired by Julian Day’s photo. You can see it on Paul Brookes’ blog post here.


The sun is a whale’s eye
great blue
grey as waves on the ocean sky.

Shipwrecks below
thin voices rising
do you hear, do you care?

Grey waves break
timbers splinter in silence
le silence de la mer.

You wink and dive
taking Ahabs and von Ebrennacs
beyond the broken horizon

where perhaps the gulls
will have pity
and answer their questions.
