    Turning Tide

     ..   Surf’s almost up SugarLet’s catch these last curlsToes to nose Schwack-pumping juicy wavesTubed in tandemBanging the backside of life Carve-ripping the cavesInto acid-drop nose divesNo worries for the future Let’s cruise it ’til we lose itGet hell-munchedPeeled and shredded, until… Nothing matters but usGoing frothyTwo rag dolls pasted to the shore ~~Nara Malone This was originally written for Sunday Scribblings and then later tweaked because the theme that day just didn’t quite fit where I wanted this to go. Tonight I’m sharing with dVerse Poets Pub. Go here to see what others wrote or to join the fun yourself.

    Friday 55: Throw Me In The Water

    Standin’ at the edge Lost what it takesAll the surfers watchin’Gonna laugh at my mistakes Cold promo desert Dried me right up I wanna stick a toe in But that surf looks rough Throw me in the water, baby Get me all wet Been telling stories all my lifeAnd I can’t quit yet Inspired by John Cruz’s video and G-Man’s Friday Flash 55.
