‘Windsurf Lesson’

Every Day Poets featured this poem, Windsurf Lesson, from my Beaufort Chronicles collection, Wednesday, August 4, 2010 for the EDP audience’s crtitical review and amusement.

Having windsurfed for the last 30 years, and taught a number of others how to windsurf, this particular piece was fun to write.

It will be interesting to see the reaction from an audience where it’s possible few have windsurfed but many have often fallen.

Hold the wind

Splash lapping

Stand, wind across your ears
