east of fukushima

(3/11/11)

 

east of fukushima

smallest cloud

fluid mercury

silver grey

whale marking

the not forever

surface the pacific

east of fukushima

 

i unearthed

a fragment

from a civilization

older than memory

knowing what

i had found

a prayer

seemed appropriate

and i said

secrets learned

from the rising

 

this secret

sounds familiar

how finding

allows giving

back

 

i give you

the memory

a single whale

a relic's living

spirit

and the knowledge

faith allows
