WORST POEM WINNER

No, I didn’t enter, but I would have won if I had.   Written with my grandchildren in mind 8-10-19, at Tybee Island:

ODE TO THE OCEAN

At Tybee Island there’s a beach

Sea shells sparkling within your reach

The moon and tide dance together

Whether foul or fair the weather

Dolphin family shows itself

Camera’s sitting on the shelf

Use suntan lotion in the sun

A bag for shells, everyone!

The beach chair helps if you are old

Salt water too, or so I’m told.

Do shut your eyes and hear the sea

Ancient memories capture me

Lullaby of the sea, it sings

Of climate change and other things

Some folks do like to ride the wave

Others turn out to be less brave

When all is said and all is done

A trip to the beach is lots of fun.

 

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
