Whale Song

SDC10988  

Listen…

There speaks a greater voice

A lush, spirited melody

We speak with wisdom

Not of creed nor race

Can you hear the harmony ?

Twirling with magnificent grace

Watch us soar

Towards the sky

We fly !

Frolicking like angels

In worship of the wind’s lullaby

‘Til suddenly…

A beckoning

An ancestral calling

Echoes from the deep below

To take us

Where the feelings go

These photos were taken on Saturday 22nd of August just off the coast of Cairns. My daughters and I embarked on a tour boat from the Cairns marina at 9am to watch the wondrous Humpback Whales frolic and play in nature’s playground just off the Great Barrier Reef. They put on a spectacular show for hours until they seemed to get bored of us and retreated. (I only wish I had a better camera to capture their true magnificence ! )

The following is a link to a beautiful Dreamtime story from the Aboriginal people, the first inhabitants of our land. Their Dreamtime stories help us to appreciate the story of creation and the spiritual connection between all creatures and the lands we share.  The story is called The Whale’s Awakening and you can find it at : http://www.dreamtime.auz.net/default.asp?PageID=53

 

 


Sam the Seagull

SAM the SEAGULLJust when I needed you
There you would be
Paddling in the shallows
A lone figure under a tree

When I walked
You followed
Watching from afar
We spoke the same language
Shared footprints in the sand

I did not choose you
You made me your friend
Circling my energy
To love
and defend

With you in sight
My travelling companion
I learnt how to skip
And jump the puddles in my path

I felt your melancholy
Sensed the longing for your tribe
So touched by your presence
You never went unnoticed
