Poem About Whales

they move in layered waters
curtained light
refolded shadows
palpable textures
the sounds move out
away return
barrier between
sound and force broken

senses blend
there, down in the water
they are singing
diving rising
where there is no direction
music blossoming on the skin
moving out and away
and returning
