Happy Bop

Happy Bop

A Poem by butterfly

Toki inspired poems...she is communing still hehe...

Last weekend I went whale watching
A few humpbacks waved their flukes hello
A mula mula fish swam under our boat
It was a fine day for SF bay bopping
I dreamed Toki, Hugo, Keiko, and all the most
Out on the bay ocean float where they were born
instead of the educating lies that conformed
I have let go of the rage
All I have left is the autumn season to mourn
In the calm wake
I wish the vision was real not a tribute meme
Yet thats all we have to keep instead of a life of grief
Toki was enslaved to the tank
Instead of being a crank
She inspires
Funny how the animals do this more than a human
Like an eccentric shaman
She sparks a different fire
I walk through and I am not burned
I have crossed the life of no return
I find myself again
Still that phoenix with rebirth
Because of her I wake up every day dancing
I end the night whale watching
Enjoying a new love filled life with happy bopping
Toki showed me that alone is a gift
even when found as a slave
one can still feel blessed
now her mission is complete
so now its time to say farewell, Toki my sweet
Burning the ocean sky with star lit fires
She inspires
to the ocean floor floats the fading rage
in the calm wake
in this sweet ocean space
beyond the bay and between the golden gate
i am alive in a matured way
happy on the bay
she reminds us we wont be sad even for one day
eat the salmon live the best way
forgiveness is the path to grace
happiness found on the bay
nature communes
as kindred spirits do
coming through 
on a whale watch
and a happy bop.
