Floating Island, Whale
The calm sea suddenly begins to shake. The boat rumbles wildly. Then, the sea divides, the sea splits, and a black-and-white whale soars into the sky. The moment I see the whale, my heart begins pounding. I finally meet my friend. The whale slowly approaches me. I am scared at first, but we soon become friends and begin swimming together. Soon another friend brings a child. He is about one month old and five meters tall. Even though he is very careful at first, he soon relaxes his mind, sings me a song of agitation, and even imitates his bull’s-eye to entertain me. We play together until sundown and part in hopes of meeting again. I promise to tell the story about Seoul tomorrow. When I go to bed, I can’t sleep because of seeing them in my eyes.
It took me several days for me to reach the equator to meet the whales. I was so attached by meeting them and living together. I feel heavy and sad when I think of them on my way home. While the mother is nursing her baby, she doesn’t eat anything and burns fat, clutching her hungry stomach and raising it hard for three to four months. They leave for Antarctica when a baby grows up enough to leave the road. There are many difficulties on the way, such as killer whales and Tiger whales. Also when they arrive in Antarctica, the cruelest whaling ships are waiting for them. A lucky friend will survive from the whaling line, but friends who are not will come a long way and end their life terribly by humans. I really feel sick.
I sometimes hang out in that big sea because I feel my friends Whales would jump up and call me. They will always wait for me and watch me without saying anything. The ocean where the whale lives is the home of my mind.
