Sleepy Whale 500


Gruff squire always love-sick

Wine dark hawk sea bay

Ghost light lost candlestick

Maladroit Alabaster silk bouquet

Gemmed fingers stuck on a stick

Low skimming shy blue-jay




a line, (a short blue one)



Sleepy Whale 498


Delta of Cassiopeia closed to open eyes jest

Midnight sleeping time for sleeping ladybird

Half mad featherless midnight black crow

Runners to the morning Irish coffee dash

More worn than a Yellowstone Buffalo

Swept of sand lightning flash

Solutes ironical sleeping glow




a line, (a short blue one)



 Sleepy Whale 499


Pale light of last evening

Silence icily almost new

Treeless as the freeway in Peru

Scrupulously neat and almost clean

Twilight sleeping like a king

Drinking dark coffee cowgirl brew

Eyes gipsy-like Azul blue

Trouser pocket key ring

Utter trivially we met today




a line, (a short blue one)



Sleepy Whale 496


Tide sheeting sand wet gray

Spiritual life misled

A slightly ironical night after dawn

Anticipation to never cry

Sleepy Whale ghost woman’s Pawn

Pluperfect inurbanity butterfly

Blue sliver ineluctable drinking lexicon

Sanguine flowered sleeping dragonfly




a line, (a short blue one)





Scorching things her very soul is high

Sleepwalk to Woman’s expensive Blue Fox Beer

Golden brown griddle cakes atmosphere

Blue in the face spit fire fly

Long death kiss cry

Wanted her ball from the Auctioneer

She tickled tiny Wane’s cheeks to cheer

A un-lady like thing to lie

Pealing anthem edifying spectacle embrace

Beseeching her effigy drink crying Rag

Hearth and home rusty bucket base

Laid to rest in an alabaster body bag

Gazing out the window looking at her face

Heart worth its weight in gold nag




a line, (a blue one)
