Poem: Ride the Waves, Respect the Ocean

Poem created in response to Poetic Bloomings’ “Life is a Beach” Gauntlet.

Day 11, July 11th

Prompt: Lakes, Oceans, Waterways

 

(form: Shadorma –a duo)

Ride the Waves, Respect the Ocean
riding waves,
standing or lying
on a board
can give one
a false sense of mastery
over the ocean

regardless
of how well you surf
the ocean,
respect her,
or you’ll be tumbled, humbled,
served up a SANDwich

 

**I didn’t intend for these to be a one-two, but they kind of fit that way, so I gave them one title.  Mother Nature can be quite the Queen B. when you take her for granted.
