Heralds of the Whale Gods


Heralds of the Whale Gods, we idolise them without knowing why.

They fill our holiday water parks with their cheeky games and sintering chatter. Adorn football team shirts or dangle in glassy windows.

Ha! There’s even people called Dolphin. Imagine that.

Their gigantic masters cruise the oceans dispensing knowledge, singing the songs of worlds drawn from their vast suboceanic domain. Their Heralds bridge the gap, swim the shallows, calling to us, offering advice.
And yet, we ignore the messages they bring, running aimlessly towards our ultimate and absolute destruction. Fools that we are.

    Yes and yes and yes … Nice writing style. I think you don’t need a capital ‘H’ for your second herald. 🙂

  2. I enjoyed this. If only we would listen to the dolphins. Maybe they could set us straight! Nice one!

    An intriguing view of the world from an off-beat angle.

  4. Dear Kelly,

    Quite a message within your story. One that should be heeded if it’s not too late. Good one.
