Poem for Sunday: Kayaking

by Nick Graham


(source: Wiki Commons)

 
The murky sea,

Writhes and churns,

A monstrous serpent,

Shadowed by clouds.

 

A chatter of adventurers

Take to the sea,

Carving through waves,

Ploughing onwards.

 

Locked in a battle,

A fight with the elements,

A test of skill and strength,

Of courage versus nature.

 

Slicing through the water,

Like a handful of knives,

Leaving no trace behind,

But an exhilarated trail of bubbles.

  1. Great poem! I love the analogy of kayaking to express the solitude of the poet in his childhood.
