Whale eye Wisdom

Whale Eye
Whale Eye
Swell of sea meets
Gray hump of a ghost
First there, then not.
At the line between sky and sea
Barnacled and scarred flesh
Then one milky eye appears.
I look and wisdom gazes back
Eye to eye we join
Falling into deep sea time.
Ancient unwritten memories
Cascade over and through me
Civilization washes from my grasp.
I am left empty and clean
Alone with wind on waves and whale
For a moment of eternity.
