Silencing the Orcas

 

Orcas fading on the horizon,

disappearing from our sightline like magic acts – one by one,

slowly becoming jars of curios on dusty museum shelves.

Expelling mist into the warm air,

their connection to each other almost palpable. 

Powerful bodies gliding like silent kayaks in an ancient sea,

navigating their families into safe harbors.

Formidable hunters at the mercy of humans.

Looking for salmon to no avail

in oil pools that hug the sides of rusted tankers,

as oblivious boaters dart through the silent, treed islands,

and young calves splash through the air with boundless joy,

unaware of their brief time on this planet.
