Morning Whales

Woke up to the sound of a whale spouting
Then another and another…
Maybe a dozen in all over five minutes
Wetness and air pressure combining to make this distinctive

The sounds felt so close by
Not exactly true of course, but some magic
About sound carrying over water
And the ocean being particularly quiet this morning

Such an intimate sound
Like someone breathing in your ear
Or onto the back of your neck
Calling me to wake up
Watch the pink sky of dawn
And delight in the coming day
