April is here 
Spring is getting kicked in the next gear 
Leaving is winter basically a whimper 
Giving way to life’s beautiful day 
Like the New Testament said 
The cold of sin is dead 
Started as a biblical wish

Surfin' Vietnam
If everybody had an ocean
it would be the bomb
everybody'd be surfin'
like in Vietnam
when we're on R&R
we surf China Beach
get away from the war
and the jungle heat
a little vacation
out of the way of harm
tell the Sergeant we're surfin'

Her heart is vicious
I can count on one hand how many times I've hunted for sex
Otherwise I'm intreged by how she confronts my respect
With her neglectful insulting self worshiping eyes
With her slowly growing suprize by my burning insides
I've devised plans to manage like...Read More

Premium Member WHEN I WAS LITTLE-
When I was little
I wished sunshine
When I was little
Dappled in sunlight
When I was little
Surf was up,  I swam the ocean blue

When I was little
I wish snow angels
On the beaches of Jamaica
When I was little
Purple Mountain Majesty

Premium Member Mama's Seven Prize Ducklings
Waddling down tangerine trails
  Carrying their favorite marmalade pails
Mama Duck and her seven prize ducklings
  Waved 'Hi' to a sandy-shelled snail  

Leaving their pails in soft saffron sand
  The ducklings waded into the foam
Babbling and bobbing...Read More

Premium Member Uncharted Seas
I now walk along the beach alone.
The moonlight reflected upon the sea,
brings memories that I don't want to own.
Time when there was more to life than just me.

So many years we shared, almost a lifetime.
We set sail to discover uncharted...Read More

Premium Member Ohio Sea Song

Where the groundhog has chewed the chain link
I slip under,
then over the blacktop
through a brittle-boned hedge,
and I am there where geese sail
a puddle-deep fog.

I taste the sea in its brine-washed spittle.
Ohio ripples with oceanic currents.
The Atlantic gets swept up on...Read More

Winter Waves
Standing atop the cliff
Looking down the precipice
To the foam-crested waves.
Crashing spume into the crags,
I notice a small vessel
Being tossed about by rollers,
A reticent rainbow attempting to
Travel across the sea,
Cloaking a mounding rock
In momentary technicolour.

The wave, a prize fighter,
Lifts its heavy...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul LX
L,

While you're gone my mind tumbles
toward the sea
aimlessly bobbing 
against the rocks and the anguish
of a washed up surf

waves move me in
and move me out
of my own way

I reach for the light of day
the sights soften the blows
searched amongst the...Read More

Premium Member Wake For An Alder Tree


I heard the clangorous salvo,
heard its joints pivot and shear,
the hips of thick branches crumble
as it folded into the night.
There was a fibrous unclasping.
The ground flew up
over its rebounding shadow.

This morning thigh deep
in foliage and catkins, I listen.
There are death...Read More

Suf Board I Can Afford
Be sure to bring your surf board, 
Which you always can afford;
To God be conscientiousness;
When you do be very anxious.

When drowning in river realized, 
That I really was being baptized; 
While I had been having a hunch, 
All politicians were...Read More

Pain of Love
when the heart cracks
the whole body trembles in disguise
When a heart breaks
only tears glue broken pieces
it is a spear pierced in the middle of a life

I now know the kicks of love
that has no defence
the tricks and pain of love

We Met at Ocean Beach Park
We met at Ocean Beach Park,
so many years ago on a weekend,
where old rock n' roll songs
blasted from the transistor radios.

The beach was covered in density
with sunbathers claiming their spots
children and their pails running around,
you were the handsome lifeguard up...Read More

Premium Member Seaside Valentine
fine grains 
of warm sugar sand
blown by a soft sea breeze
pelleted our feet 
as we ran
to the foaming surf
gulls drifted overhead
red sun slowly sank
heart with arrow 
and our initials
drawn in the sand
driftwood fire
embers floated 
to kiss the sky
wine, smiles
embrace, love

take risks, be courageous, and wander on you dreamers
for sky is the limit even for you non-believers,
