Friday Fun – surf!

(Bali, 2019)

 

do you remember your first love?

’twas one of the happiest 

memories of your life

I bet, makes your young heart

giggle

with gladness

it feels like that,

to dream, to ride a wave

of getting up on a surfboard

and let yourself slide on a wave

something that will always be a dream

the kind of dream that makes

you leap with joy

and hop with excitement

do you remember how your heart

was broken, for the first time?

’twas one of the saddest

memories of your life

I bet, the thought of losing

makes your young heart struggle

in pain and doubt

it feels like that,

to just dream,

to ride a wave

indescribable feeling

of gliding across the water

just like your first love

I too fell in love

for the first time

of riding a wave

on a beautiful summer day

upon a blue sky blending

in with the ocean

just as many first loves

turn into many first heartaches

my heart too was broken,

for the first time

For kate’s friday fun -surf

Friday Fun – surf!

  1. ” told my resting beauty,
    all of us want to fall in love.
    I want to be drunk in love where you and I.
    Dance and sing to the rising sun,
    waltz and pray to the midnight moon.
    I want to taste love blessing,
    to swim in the ambrosia of the kiss of you.
    I want to fall in love with you.”
    I believe we need love near, first love won’t be the last love. Love proof is someone willing to dance with us, sing with us in the good or bad days. A wonderful poem. You made me want to write.

  2. Yes, I remember those times in my life.
    You captured this so beautifully and poignantly, SweetMich!
    Surfing….Love…. with both, we learn by being courageous and following that yearning for freedom!
    Yes, the heart gets hurt, but it gets stronger and yet softer at the same time. ❤
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  3. I was nearly a teenager when I met some “real surfer boys” at the beach. They decided to take me with them and we would paddle the boards to Santa Catalina, after all, it was only twenty-six miles out… alas, the Coast Guard kept chasing us back. They said I was a natural but I must admit I do have saltwater in my veins and I never had any fear of the ocean. Now I live on the Mediterranean where there are no real waves but a lot of wind/kite surfing. In fact, it originated nearby. SURF’S UP!

      1. In those days, all I wanted to do was run and the sea was the place I truly felt safe (no fear). I survived. Now I want to go to the beach, if only the wind would die down… Now when I go to the sea, it is to rejoice and listen to her secrets.

      3. You are kind. The wanting to run was for survival ( a lot more about that, especially in my older poems) but the realization that I had responsibilities that kept me where I was. Today, I’m on my own ( along with my new family, the village, some friends outside and two cats who are in charge.) ❤❤❤

  4. love how you connected love and the waves and being out at sea – the crushing feeling and the exhilaration – so tenderly drawn – a love song everyone can relate to – to have loved and lost, puppy love and all the trappings of youthful exuberance – just lovely!
