The bodysurfers

bondi-cropped

lift together in the wave
as if for a moment
there was something
greater than us.

jump together
like kids at skip rope
(timing is everything)
as if for a moment
we were more
than skin
over rocks

on our chests
in our hands.

  1. I especially like this….”as if for a moment there was something greater than us”
    A humbling thought we need to have more often…love the “togetherness” vibe of this poem.
