SURFING THE WAVES
 
 
 

SURFING THE WAVES

Surfing is a surface water sport in which the wave rider, referred to as a surfer, rides on the forward or deep face of a moving wave, which is usually carrying the surfer towards the shore. Waves suitable for surfing are primarily found in the ocean, but can also be found in lakes or in rivers in the form of a standing wave or tidal bore. However, surfers can also utilise artificial waves such as those from boat wakes and the waves created in artificial wave pools.

This intrepid surfer is riding a wave in the waters of the Bass Strait, on the coast of Phillip Island, about 140 km south-southeast of Melbourne, Victoria. Keen surfers, like this man, are undeterred by wintry weather or other hazards (like sharks!) and will practice their sport at every opportunity.

Evan Grant recall his past,
knowing poets and poems that sound well
if Tom Fox runs hock balls exact,
Kevin Sherrington will lighten up, surely

despite the fact that Lilyn and Emily are different,
so do Marissa Bogue and Mira Singer,
Jon Arbold and Randy Wilson reside at Trenton road,
while wines are toasted at Seattle, New Haven, Edmond, and San Diego


fruits and ice cream cones
Dallas morning news holds up half of the sky
we vote for Brianna, Albert, Barjit, Aya, Carrie, and Kenneth
walked path and subscription medicine work wonders


hear the roar
notice the shadow
wore a poetic worbe
listened birds fly north pole for more favorite festivals together

THIS WEEK'S WORDS come from "Are Poets the Same as Everyone Else?" by Esther Cohen: festival, together, wore, only, poems, fruit, walked, favorite, wine, listened, before, shades

as Tiegan Willoaghby and Robert Meinder said,
Things go around
unexpected
Notable people pause
ordinary folks run
all passengers sit
and refuse to move themselves
from where they go
the mobile phone
and the train cargo
all push
and we wait,
and enlighten our day
with Novel Arrivals

Thomas wants to go home
Francis Norick and Majorie Norick want to do art
both are good
