From Up Here

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July Covid-19 P.A.D. – Day 19
“Scanning The Horizon”

“You are the Lifeguard in the big chair here at Poetic Bloomings Beach.

Your Ray Bans are perched, your whistle is tethered and your flotation device is nearby. Life is nothing like Baywatch.

What is within you view? Write your observation and don’t forget the sunscreen.”

Poor kid looks like a butterfly,
yellow water wings-cinch to spy.
Look at that bikini–oh my!
She caught my eye! She caught my eye!

He’s a regular in striped suit,
tight red and black lines, gut to boot.
Sights from up here are quite a hoot.
The girls are cute! The girls are cute!

About purplepeninportland

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.
