A Whale In The Sky

Poem By Cecelia Weir

I was just a child
When I saw a whale
Floating in the sky.
I couldn't comprehend what I saw
I couldn't believe my eyes.
I knew the sky was blue
Like the ocean wide and deep
But why was there a whale
For this was not the sea.
I pondered to myself
Over and over again.
Was I standing upside down
Or had my senses flew off
And estrangly left me bound.
There was a strong breeze of wind
That had pushed me nearly down
Was this when I became confused
Was this why I felt like a clown.
Then I made myself give in
I was not near an ocean channel
Maybe it would just be smarter
To notify the next of kin
For what I saw I could not handle.
I laughed ever so loud
When my mother walked over
To me and said
She knew what I was thinking
She knew what was in my head.
You're seeing an airplane
For the very first time
But you don't have to worry
Its just going to keep flying.
You think something is wrong
But how beautiful it is to see
Something floating along so large
That God astonishingly holds up
Over the heads of you and me.
You might say an airplane
Is the big whale of the sky
For it carries passengers
From one place to another
And sometimes transport supplies.
Like Ole Brother Jonah
In the belly of the whale
I can imagine him riding the skies
Traveling to some new adventure
That only God could tell.
One day I hope to ride
The oceans of blue skies
Being not a cloud in view.
And one day you may fly a plane
And I'll be proud of you.
