The Images of Ashala

I am beginnning this blog with a poem written by  Mihael Kavanaugh, the gentleman who serenaded her with his flute a few weeks ago.  It is a poem that expresses all our hope that she will return to the sea soon.

The whale
She circle dances
To and fro
In the river flow
To the music notes
Of prayerful song
Her presence
We try to understand ….

Flute Serenade to Mama, the Klamath River Whale

Something ancient
Yet, for modern man
The tide, tells of the sea
Just moments away
But she, is not ready
The chanting echoes
For her well being
The song too
Heart and melody
Hoping her wish is granted
And she returns
To sea, and family
