Imagine Jonah, adrift in a cold, dark ocean.
Endless water. no land in sight.
The whale's mouth open. The rushing
Of water into the void. Inevitability;
He too will be sucked in. Fighting it
And fighting it. Fighting an ocean.
Fighting a whale. Fighting the inevitable.
Then that moment of surrender. Letting go.
Sucked into darkness.
Surrender now, like Jonah.
Emerges from the forest.
Approaches almost silently.
Nuzzles your neck.
Soft breath on your face.
Looks you straight in the eyes.
- A promise.
