Sounds at the Beach
Breaks just for breathing, a breach in my burden,
Beholding a bubble of life at the beach.
… BLUB, BLUB, BLUB
Billowed and buffeted by a breeze, blowing.
Bereft of blaming and breaking my back.
Cast toward the cosmos of a coastal class,
Curiously calming, calamitous sounds.
… CRASH, SWISH, YAHOO
Cacophonous calls of crazy kids,
Capering, carousing and carrying on.
Swimmers and surfers celebrate the seas with
Sensational sounds of splishing and splashing .
… SPLISH, SPLASH, SPLISH
Sensational swimsuits sun silently as
Sizzling suntans stimulate the senses.
… HISS, SIZZLE
Wrestled and whipped by a westerly wind,
Waves upon waves of wondrous water.
… SWISH, SWOOSH
Whisk away both worries and woes,
While waterfront walkers wistfully unwind.
… OOOOHH, AAAAHHH
I started this poem earlier in the day and struggled with it. It’s supposed to be an abstract poem where sound is everything. I ended up just having fun with the sounds and let the poem do it’s own thing. After a little sleep, I wonder if I’ll hate it or not?
For the time being, it’s my entry for the Poetic Blossoms challenge to write an abstract or sound poem. Let’s hope I didn’t embarrass myself, here!
