When Rio suggested a poetry journal excitement ran through me with such force, I realised that I had to give it a go.I know I like to write a poem on a daily basis and it is often very random. Here was an opportunity to write a poem which might reflect my mood, where I am at, what my thoughts are on a given day and what made me write a poem.
So here goes, Something New to get my teeth into. So today’s poem came from the inspiration of a surfer who I chatted to on twitter. Mad I know. I don’t surf and never have done, however he made me feel that I wanted more to life. I wanted perfection each day, what ever that may be.
Blue Skies as far as the eye can see
Surf rolling, high crests rising
Sun sparkling on the waters edge
Surfers riding the waves
Hope paddling out,
shock as the wave is caught,
Amazed as each wave is ridden,
Ecstasy as they glide with the water,
Disbelief of the power of the wave,
freedom, speed with the breaking surf,
Spiritual feeling, at one with nature,
One foot in the sand
one in the water
waiting for the perfect wave.
