Board Walk.....


Walking down the board walk
from one end of the beach to
the other end, searching for
that hot dog stand...

Then off to A distance
the hot dog stand was spotted
the kids off in pursuit to
place their order...

We all sit down on A
picnic table to enjoy
our hot dogs and drinks
and watch the big oil ships.....

When done we started
our journey, back down
the board walk to our car....

So if you get board
take A stroll down
A board walk enjoying
the site you see......

    Boardwalk is a Poem that borders traditionalistic Prose...Quite melancholy, it takes one particular segment of the day and finely details it, but in a very relaxed and matter-of-fact manner. i like it a lot, Tracey'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''fjr (Report) Reply
