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 (c) April 16, 2018 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
