Napowrimo #2: Aeolian Squid

There really is a distinct shortage of good rhymes in English.

Aeolian Squid

Observant sailors sometimes say
that over Arctic seas
they see small blobs of silver-grey
floating on the breeze.

With bodies full of helium,
they rise above the spray,
and trail ten dangling tentacles
in search of tiny prey.
