'The storms are raging on the rollin' sea, and on the highway of regret'

It was surfers' paradise weather but he had only captured a dinghy

Made from lost dreams and drift wood collected in seasons of love

No shoreline in sight he...Read More

A Lull

An event that surfers know too well,
for it visits upon them, time and time, again,
and upon its occasion, it is best to parley.

Friends are made whilst best friends meld,
as addresses are traded, and rendezvous are created,
amidst an extension of...Read More

The country, people, and the village,
All equal, as if, for the first time, 
All of that gave a fresher image,
Nay, 'tis but a relative vantage.
Save fresh road, to its left bears a sign.

Premium Member About The Last Shark
There once was a great white 
Who was looking for a bite 
And there was a seashore town 
That had smiles instead of a frown 

Preparing for a 100 year celebration
With wind surfing racing 

It took a whole year of...Read More

Premium Member Oldies' Summer
Temperature predicted: 38 degrees,
Pavement scorching before mid-morning,
Government-issued sunscreen warning,
But many people choose to ignore that.

Summer brings on the cockroaches,
Plus, needless to say, abundant flies,
As the sun's heat radiates from the skies -
We dread this time as it approaches.

Early food preparation...Read More

Premium Member Swell
The swell is rising, 
furrowing the brow of seascape,
forewarning of storm arising.
Sheer bliss for surfers,
toil and trouble incising
ferment and foreboding 
on sailor's foreheads, glistening,
with the spray and froth flung
from wave-top manes breaking, 
off from white horses on the bay prancing.

Their Beach
Before the sun.
They are there.
On their beach.

The sleepers sleep, on their sand.
Laying in the night,
By the water.

The surfers sit, on their boards.
Looking out to sea,
For the wave.

The fishers wait, on their pier.
Watching the lines,
For the catch.

The sun rises.
The outsiders arrive.

beaches with laid back coconut palm trees

Welcoming both surfs and surfers back in
for a relaxed

neath a
lunar rise
as a starred sky
pauses for fallen stars on a black beach.

Kelea was a pretty girl
Who loved to surf with rip & curl
She felt so alive
When surfers would dive
Just to see Kelea's pink pearl*

Dropping a voyage
across the printed pages,
he splashes through  
the shallow WhatsApp.	
Words are wearisome.
Expression seeks emojis. 

Mangoes are ripe. 
Song of nature flows out
of a syrinx.
Yet he kills the day
with the Angry Birds.

Ground is dry, 
and in the growing shade.

Peeling Back the Bubble Wrap

Peeling back the bubble wrap on the ancient of days, 
Back to when Nixon was still presiding,
He, leading with paranoid deliberations, 
Sold his yeses to the Goldbricks, and the Mustard Men;
And while he was dipping into...Read More

The Countryside
Roar goes the monstrous winds of the west 
Whooshing against the coast 
The Blustery waves battling against the sails and boats 
Surfers loving the gigantic waves 
Hydraulic action, 
Attrition and Deposition 
You name it 
Gives us a wonderful coast 
Beautiful and peaceful 
The lovely breeze, 
Green hills, 
And the attractive landscape

Premium Member Ode to the Mighty Great Lakes
Coast to Coast

The sun ascends over the Great Lakes
And settles back into the indigo depths of water
Like the flight of a copper swan

With her sweeping wing tips skimming
Shore to shore

Atop the water

The azure locks of eternity to open and close
And...Read More

Revenue of Grief
Flowers bloom to the fullest,
Garden of colours and aroma;
Fresh turf covering at full stretch,
A pleasant place for my mama.

A heart that lacks blooming, like mine,
Colours shall fade and perfumes evaporated;
Like dried and wasted grass, that’s how I feel,
Mama’s death came...Read More

A change of seasons..
A change of heart..
The trees once dressed with leaves 
Now had gradually undressed
Leaves had fallen from the trees
Leaves vibrantly colorful
A refreshing experience..
As the air is crisp and cool..
A wonderland of leaves on the ground
Trees are almost bare..

time and time again     by cloudy blot resistance
We always rolled scroll win ...
