Oh, wow, Foggy, fantastic piece. I think this is one of the hardest forms to pull off properly, too, yet the Villanelle form just works so eloquently here adding such lyricism to this piece. *exalt and more, my friend.
Ah, at last I've found where to respond to this poem! Villanelle aside for a moment, this is a very moving write, foggy. The whale's perceptions are like it is breeching over our heads: we might feel the spray but we don't hear it's song. Technically, the villanelle is done with great panache. It doesn't sound or read as rigidly as the form dictates and yet it actually IS. Exalt!! H x
