Searching deep emerald waters.
No luck. No luck he wails into the wind.
Raindrops falling from green branches into empty emerald waters
The grey clouds around her shoulders
Like a funeral shroud
Where are you
Great swift wonders?
Black and white breathtaking
Beauties of the Salish sea.
Has man finally taken too much?
No more magic
No more Orca
Mother Cedar weeps into the empty Salish sea.
