The Shortboard Exercises: A Tribute To Rell Sunn - Poem by Bud Taylor

I saw your graceful stride alight
upon great waves lighthouse bright
Image cast upon a page
without doubt eternally brave

Till wave crest see your body lean
on longboard she ace the sea
Dare all break carbon hold
in atmosphere and truely bold

Place that bosu ball upside down
between two armrests safely bound
hop aboard left foot fore
tuck your chin and leave the floor

Now on deck you dance
The shortboard exercises with legs astance

Take a breath, bend your knees
free your mind upon the seas

Surf the shortboard
hands thrust high
just like rell grace divine

Topic(s) of this poem: grace

Form: Ballad
