Word play

When the breakwater slaps the spit And the waves break into foamy bits That leap to the sky Hoping to catch the sun’s eye Then down again to become one As the sea takes them back. The fearsome roar Punctuated by the gulls squawk Biting wind clutches at coats And flings kites to the sky. Hands deeply... Sign in to see full entry.

A poem for my grandson

Mr. toad Sat on the commode And wondered away the day Why would a toad Sit on a commode? Was mostly what he wondered. He thought to himself “I suppose it’s perfectly fine that I want my thoughts to rhyme.” His name was Billy And though that sounds silly His favorite ice cream was Thyme. I tried to...
