    I don't know why but I am just under some kind of spell when it comes to whales and the ocean. Perhaps it's that they are so ancient and the seas cover most of the planet, perhaps its the persecution of them and their lack of aggression in the face of it, perhaps they are the custodians of so much and we fail to realise it. This poem and soundtrack which are composed, performed and played by me reflects the almost spiritual feeling I have towards them. Not religious, there's a difference, even though I've used Agnus Dei as a theme. I did this in the semiotic sense, in the sense of a signpost to how I feel about it all and the peace that whales and the sea constantly bring to me.


    What am I following,
    this pull call pull of something higher?
    Rising and bellowing
    thermo clines mellowing deep
    subsonic viscous noise,
    resonating through rib-cages,
    grasping aortas,
    whale song.
    Blues, Minkes, Orcas.

    Thermoclines is the title I have chosen for this, 'lines' being appropriate to poetry, and 'thermoclines being appropriate to the levels I move through emotionally on this subject.
    My works and poems, I Call The Whale, Whalesong and Thermoclines are all related, and perhaps I will connect them one day. meanwhile I hope you obtain a sense of peace from this wishes. Neil
