orcas dream...for tilikum and all the tilikums out there

orcas dream

we dream of oceans,
not swimming pools.
where we can live by
our own,
not human
rules.
we dream of our pods.
our unbreakable bonds,
that spread over the seas,
and far beyond.

across the bridge, there is a room
for the forever lost and majestic
tilikum.
a space where he and others like him 
can at last swim free.
safe and far from the inhumane
in humanity.
we mourn your loss yet this
we know,
your suffering is now over.
you are where angels go.
rest in peace 
while we here on
the earth below.
fight for those in
captivity
NO MORE CETACEANS
IN 
SHOWS!!!!

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
