The stories
in nature are never complete,

There are always lessons that will repeat,

From the
past, the present, and eons beyond,

Patterns
develop from plans once spawned,

 

From visions,
I’ve seen truths and facts,

Comparing
man and beast in gruesome acts,

Animals in
nature out of necessity must kill,

While mankind
often does it for the thrill,

 

Yet in my
dreams the circle’s center,

Becomes the
place where I enter,

And the
visions I see are all askew,

Gruesome,
deadly, but nothing new,

 

In my deep dark dreams I could see,

Killer
whales and their strategy,

Orcas, the
wolves of the sea,

Driving
their prey to its destiny,

 

Penguins or
seals, whatever the prey,

Onward pushed,
none allowed to stray,

Eager to
escape, but they stayed tight knit,

To the group
they had chosen to commit,

 

But the pod
of orcas tightened the noose,

Turning
their prey inward, not one turned loose,

The orcas
continuing their relentless chase,

Until the
matriarch gave the signal to end the race,

 

There was no
waiting, no time to pause,

Into the
center slashed hungry jaws,

A feeding
frenzy with victory won,

Patience
rewarded, the pod moved on,

(To be
Continued)

    • The first part was okay. I’m still tinkering with part three.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

  1. why do i feel i know this phenomenon ! I can not place a name to it now .. The Sardine effect or something !
    Any way this was a wonderful post with some hard facts on human kind ,.,

    • There’s more to come. I finished it this morning. If I post it will you tell me exactly what you think?

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

      • I might be late in reading but i sure want to know the end of it ! 🙂
        And i guess it was just my impression of the scene that got me thinking of Sardine Run (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sardine_run)
        And I realize i had the opposite thought ,.,, Its the sharks that round up sardines , not vice versa ..

        PS : Check out some youtube video of sardine run if you can. Saw once on Nat Geo .. It was beautiful though deadly ..

      • Coming your way, I’m posting parts two and three together.

        May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
