Whale bones

Going through the stone turf shed, I found the sack of whale vertebrae that we found in the  sea cave in the Port bay this summer. They are well bleached now, and  smell of the sea.  Circles of growth on the round inner bone like those on the cut trunk of a tree. They have meaning when you hold them, cupped between two hands,  like  stepping stones into the heart of the beast, its real nature.
