I had no idea where I was going with Three Word Wednesday prompts brash, lubricate, and saint until I visited here and took a walk on the beach. click.
a night at the beach what is left
toes covered in sugary sand
lubricated by coconut lotion frosting
seagulls squawk and dive
in sunglass mirrors
brash waves run up and tease
leaving bits of flotsam
salty jetsam ain’t no saint
Beach Boys playing
cool breeze drives the sun down
down into the deep
just follow the moonlight trail
to the end of the world
where dawn sleeps
hey this was very vivid in imagery..
a picture would have made this pictureperfect i thought! 🙂
lovely use of the three words…
thank you Leo 🙂
I’m not much of a beach person – it’s always seemed more fun in the imagination or the memory than in the present. But I like the imagery here. A perfect beach memory.
My libra personality makes me undecided – I love the beach and the mountain equally…so where do I end up? The piney woods LOL
I’m a capricorn and I love the mountains and the Texas hill country. I’m married to a pisces who can spend hours and hours at the beach, staring at the water, until I’m in tears from boredom. A high cliff over a rocky beach can capture my imagination, like in Maine, but ordinary sandy beaches not so much. I’m sure the hubby and I didn’t set out to be astrological stereotypes (or at least I didn’t) but there you are.
How did I miss the Libra indications? Ms Tina, also a Libra, has the dubious distinction of living with her Scorpio mate. We’re both saved by the fiery Sag in our midst.
You conjur a great image here. I was almost there.
I’ll meet you Anthony!
salty jetsam ainâ€™t no saint
And that’s just my favorite flavor amidst a shower of flavors; love that last line, too. Mine was the poem of an abstract head; this is the poem of a woman who knows . . .
Jetsam, she ain’t tellin
A sunset over the ocean, what a great inspiration. Unfortunately I live on the “sunrise on the ocean” area of the country, and I’m not getting my butt out of bed that early. 🙂 Vivid scenery in your work, nice job!
just sleep on the beach, Jay. I imagine the sun would be glad to wake you up 🙂
This is simply beautiful.
This is beautiful — I felt like I was right there with you. You have a gorgeous way with words and imagery.
‘Hips swaying Beach boys playing’ Love this , love the beach!
