Hanging With Beach Bums & Bashful Babes




Hanging with beach bums & bashful babes

Swimming in the surf on late Spring days

Colorful flavors poured gently over ice

Skin glowing after hours in the pleasant rays

I thought I saw a Sea Hag along the sand

Though she revealed herself to be a Siren

Coaxing & teasing me with her demure allure

Whispering that I might be a modern Lord Byron

Uncomfortable with compliments of any sort

I quietly pull out my pen to jot down an ode

Her eyes grow wide, then a smirk & a wink

Simultaneously my mind, heart & loins explode



The Young Woman Sits Quietly In The Room


the young woman sits quietly in the room

staring endlessly ahead

occasionally picking up her pen to jot down a note

the casual clothes cover her slender frame

a blonde crown adorns her head

her beauty catches my roaming eye

without saying a word, she silently walks away
