Beautiful world
Beautiful world where miracles begin.
World of glory, stunning nature hear her sing.
Rivers flow into oceans, creating life.
The sands hold a million crushed diamonds for us to rest.
Skies are blue and filled with puffs of cotton candy.
Birds surfing on her warm...Read More

His life raft drifted helplessly in an ocean of tears and lost dreams

		In tangible finite and impermanent flow

He lost his compass and the needle festered in Tom’s purulent arm

		A portal to hot flushes of receding pain

Chasing sea dragons and hobgoblins...Read More

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

With wind surfing racing

Surfing in the Void
Are you muse listening?

Can you hear
the Cosmic mechanics
quantum singing?

The nebular orchestral oscillations
are photon vibrating

Waves upon waves
of pure starlight expanding harmoniously

Music of the Spheres
ring Galactic in my ears

As I silver surf in the Void,
seeking the golden 
event horizon
of Infinity

The Fountain of...Read More

Surfing 

I am not always under,
But I haven’t learned to surf the top.
Arriving at the trough and wondering
When the pain is going to just stop.

What Washes This Way
See them Iscariot eyes silver surfing,
filthy lucre foam
	is left in their wake

You best be watching them,
when they’re evil eyeballing you

Dirty money laundry days a-rising, 
grifter ink gloam ...
	palms on the last take

Grimy worst, the dullest dim,
are midnight indigo  ...Read More

Seas were rough and choppy here and there.
I could not bear the challenges I was going to face,
But you were by my side guiding me when and where.

Gratitude's past grief
brief repast

When re-articulating grief
becomes transparently warm passion,
yet without terrifying overheated anger,
we are together filled with resonantly vulnerable sound 
and traumatic sight,

Therein opens new possibilities,
avenues, shared
tides,
streams,
neurological highways
mini-cultures surfing for resiliently polypathic gratitude,

An experiential reminder,
a virtuous feedback loop,

La Croix Valmer


We took the Marseilles road,
a cambered sun streaking the bay
with gold threads.

We drink lemon tea 
while lovers and others
search for cheap wine.

We are alone at last, free 
to explore our magnetic boundaries;
hands stalking hands
on a checkered tablecloth.

That night we translate

Belly Boarding
By Tom
9-3-2019

In brackish water,
I first learned to swim.
It wasn’t by some plan,
But merely on a whim.
Being a San Diego boy,
Surf captured my eye.
On the spur of the moment,
I gave surfing a try.
The girl I was with,
Flashed a worried frown.

Surfing

We wobble, driven, over the edge 
of browsing surfboards.
The ‘Beachboys’ haunt us
as we slide toward the rocky domains
of look-at-me blogs, 
or commercial choked pages.

ride-on you wipe-out wizards,
we are all just Peter Pans

Supine ink sea spreads far searching skyline,
shore’s sheen allures curling waves to embrace
sun soaked blonde beach with strings of pearl adorned.
Surfing winds surge, can’t whisk sands from my hand,
I build castle on shore, I’m not island.
