Sweet “Crazy Kids”

22 Feb

( original posted 2013 and revised for Monday WRite and Sunday’s, Poetry Pantry)

Sea weed, seaweed, slurping near the beach.

Cautiously  side stepping, avoiding it from our feet.

Slippery slapping, splashing barely surfacing for us to see.

Oh my gosh!

What is that SLITHERING? And SQUISHING?

Well yaaa! EEEEK!

Run for the beach!

Look! Look!

Where?

Here! See, SEE where it bit me?

Naw, I don’t see nuthin’,

BUT, let’s get out of REACH.

    ZQ, I like the way you have made the reader HEAR this poem. And I can FEEL the squishing. Smiles.

    exploring the beach in our bare feet is one of the favourite pastimes of our childhood, never mind the dangers of seashells, sea urchins and crabs.
    loved the playful little poem. 🙂

    perfectly captured that uncertainty of friend or foe in the paddling depths of seaweed – enjoyed hearing you read it too
