A Whale of a Tale

I originally wrote this poem on my “In Love With Words” blog as part of a poetry writing assignment in the Writing 201 course WordPress is currently running. The assignment was to write a concrete — or shaped — poem about an animal. The structure of the poem is not supposed to look like a normal poem, but should present a picture of the subject of the poem. So when you scroll down to the poem itself, stand way back, squint one eye, and imagine you see the big flippers of a whale as he goes down into the ocean of words. Then you can enjoy the story.
