#26 - The Great Wave

An upward surge / our ship beneath a nook
of wave / inhale / and hold / caught as an eel
and swung to stun / in brutal arc / the hook /
at me / at sea / all at / the rope is wet and squeal
-ing in the grip / the thunder snaps / a claw
is closing / shudder in the / deep and green /
about to drop through / wet and toothless maw
is closing / now exhale / and loose / the scream
of fear / of joy / the fall of ocean foam
like snow / and snow as well / the scales of fish
are glinting on my coat / the monochrome
is fusing sky and sea / a cloud of fish /
the wind relaxes / a streak of gold / the blush
of dawn / relief / the light unfolding hush
