The Arriving Swell – November 2011 Issue of Moonshine Ink

She arrives

From deep in the Aleutian Arc

In a well-timed unison

The strict formation

Of an army in the dark November Pacific.


Moon rises

And with it

Monstrous walls of water

Explode on the tormented reef

Bellowing in natural duty.


Underneath she is caught

Holding her breath

Amongst the battle of kelp and

A family of otters who

Watch the bulging eyes

Of this strange creature


Why she is down here

Away from her own.
