Whale Watch in Kona

Whale Watch in Kona

A Poem by WordShifter

True story while watching whales in Kona, Hawaii


Whale Watch in Kona


A whale watch on the ocean blue

Stand up, hang tight to the rails

Pay the money, a big price

Oh Well! I must see the whales


Nothing there that I can see

My eyes tired from the search

It is getting windy and cold

Out here on this swaying perch

Captain yells look, "12:00 o'clock"

where to look, Oh! so far away

It doesn't seem like much

to me it is just a spray


It is coming closer now I see

How did it get so big, Oh Whoa!

When the whale exhales

they call it a "blow"


I want it to jump and dance

Like in photos that I've seen

Lord! please give it a chance

to show that mighty beam


He flapped his tail with a splash

His way to say "good bye"

Into the deep descent he went

But he didn't jump into the sky


When a whale jumps into the air

I learned it is called a "breach"

This whale watch Captain

Has so much to teach


Another whale I see it now

He is so far away

Breach one time and then again

 He really wants to play


"He is a young male" the Captain said

after 28 jumps he did share

I don't care what it cost

It was worth the hefty fare
