The backbone of a whale
undulates and leads off
on a searching path,

Focused on a glint of light
the journey starts,
the motion, lumbering, muscular

seems infinite - the hunger
of the incomplete never quells
in a bedraggled sea.

Only the rain on the water
tells the creature of another
airy life above...

Eventually, the end of atmosphere
death's barrier, leading beyond hope,
beyond nothingness.
