Ode to the Granite Boulder in Lake Superior

...upon emerging from the fury of 
swimming just a few feet out in the Grand 
Old Lady


Boldly upright in surf
Fog races in and cloaks her surface
Alive! I grip the bottom for the crush
As waves crash my glistening face
Freedom has found me!

    You made it out of trouble's palm? I get beautiful imagery and danger. Always witty, pleasant and illusive! N5

    Had me thinking of the people who ride the surf. I am afraid of water so you would not catch me riding the waves or on the water if possible. Nicely done on this poem Jimbo. love phyl
