CETACEAN, Poetry by Stephen J. Jacobs

Genre: Philosophical

by Stephen J. Jacobs

Breath-Joy spouts cascade up –
and away –
and down my flanks as I jump past Liquid Mother’s surface
tension to taste the Sky and wave a flipper
in Salutation to Father Sun.

Descending curve to Mother Ocean,
I insert myself with grace and passion
and a quick kiss from my tail
to one of Her soft swells.

Bubbles tickle me as air molecules
leapfrog up my skin
to rejoin their cousins topside.

Hard right turn as my clicks
bounce back from a snack –
whose Spirit I thank –
even as I snap and transpose
Little Life to sustain Bigger Life;

to Water Dance in Blessing
to and from the Creator
of the Oceans of my Universe.
