The Beach Is a Road

Category: My Poetry

The beach is a road
so my car is a boat
and my boat has a sail
and it fills in the wind
and it speaks of my body

it speaks only in code
it has plenty to teach

so I loosen the ties
and catch up the main
take the tiller in hand
and testing the wind
reach away from the sand

the further I go now
the farther I am

my worries seem to follow
my thoughts left on land

sheeting in I point higher
parallel to the shore
stretching and leaning
my length overboard
my rudder it vibrates
and hums out a song

Now, I’m part of the circuit
Now, the struggle is gone.

Thanks, Sean for the super writing prompt. I enjoyed myself thoroughly!
