(previously published in Decanto Nov 2013, and included in my book Silence…)

It came from nowhere,
roared up from the depths,
pushed into a strong easterly
growing two metres tall,
glistening in the morning sun,
drawing me closer, curling,
offering me its chilled embrace.
I declined, diving deep instead.
Enraged at my rejection
it hurled itself upon the shore,
bullying grains of sand, smashing seaweed,
before desperately tugging at me
as it slunk back to the depths,
promising to return soon.

About George Fripley
I am a writer who enjoys writing humour, satire, poetry and sometimes a bit of philosophy. I live in Perth, Western Australia and occasionally get a poem or article published. It's all good fun! I have two books available for unwary readers, Grudges, Rumours and Drama Queens- The Civil Servant's Manual (This contains all that anybody could ever want to know about why government runs so slowly) and More Gravy Please! - the Politician's Handbook. (available through Amazon). Real name Peter Tapsell...just started off writing under a pseudonym and kept going.
