Na/GloPoWriMo Day 16: Waves Like Yesterday

The Na/GloPoWriMo challenge for day 16 is to write a poem about a sport or those who do the sport.  I’ve chosen surfing.  Big surprise?  Probably not….

Waves Like Yesterday
by Michael Romani

Walking down the grains of sandy beach
I spot the dolphins playing just out of reach
Feeling the coolness of the springtime breeze
Just below the fronded palm trees

Always caught in my deep love of the ocean
Scattered moments of reverent devotion
I feel it deep like waves crashing over me
Salt licks away my heart's wounds in this sea

The storm winds push into gusts that erode
Fading away into the waves we have always rode
I feel the intensity of the crisp crash
As I slip and slide into current driven dash

Swirled like tea leafs swimming in my tea cup
Every bit of me responds to the melody of surf's up
It's a magic dealt into the spring's swelter
Riding over and over into the evening's shelter

Surfers and dolphins embrace this not so secret thrill
Smiling faces filled with the laughter of our secret chill
Snapping dog waves lap their crests before the shore
Each of us present and only wanting a lifetime of more
