beach party

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1710 Beach Party
“This has in a way to do with our theme for today. Today I have chosen “Beach Party” as our prompt and there were and will be a lot of beach parties the upcoming days. Your task today is to create a haibun (or tan-bun (tanka instead of haiku) with a maximum of 250 words. Maybe you have been at a beach party or maybe you will attend a beach party …”

My fun times at the beach were not in party form. A bunch of girls
trying to get the best tan possible, rubbed a concoction of baby oil
and iodine on each other. We cooked. Flipping from stomach to back, our beach
towels touching corners, music playing, and those sorely needed dips in the ocean
to cool off.

sand, surfing, falling
in love at beach parties. Only
at the movies

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
