A Poem: A Batch of Bathers Beaching

Updated on February 16, 2015

Time and tide wait for no man (or woman.)

Life is best by the beach.

Observing at the beach....

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Surly, shored sailors

Sopping summer's sun,

Watching willowy women

Warming winter's wan.

Bankers' business bodies

Bronzed beyond belief.

Lusty, lifelong lovers

Lolling like lost leaves.

Red-necked, robust runners

Romping rimey rims.

Chattering, chummy children

Chomping chewy gums.

Usually upper-class mums

Unguentined under umbrellas.

Pedantic, pensive poet

Painting picture poems.

      I enjoyed this. I like the lack of stanzas, it drives the reader on, giving the feeling of movement, almost reeling.

      It was fun writing it and recalling stored visual images from lifeguard days on the coast of Maine. I appreciate your enjoyment.
