8/10/22 “Lunge Feeding, Risso’s, & a Mighty Blue Whale”
By wind, waves, and bravery, suffering for months,
The Sea chashes in all her debts, all at once.
Three trips we skated ‘or blue fields of glass,
Three trips beholding the Humpbacks in mass.
This way and that, and all day we saw,
Anchovies by millions engulfed in the maw.
The life soup of plankton, sea lion, and bird
The barking and blows were all that we heard,
Again comes a boil, erupting with fish,
Leviathan frenzy, anchovy main dish.
Tears to the sunset, this majesty done,
Set sail for home, sick passengers: none.
