Swimming upstream

blackfish dance

horrors present

as we fail to live in the present.

we say don’t complain,


and yet fail to listen and learn.

blackfish human swim in circle



holy balance,

we teeter on the brink

as we insist we are the pinnacle.

we stand on the nose,

ignorant that we are the thumb

that makes the rude gestures to the Gods we ourselves create





for our faults.

Oh Great Mystery – hold us all gently in your big sea,

as we learn to swim together.
