Waiting for…

moan and squeal
boom and sigh
gentle slap and tickle
admonishing crash
and sibilating spray
rolling up the horizon
and laying it out again

Kim M. Russell, 2018

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads NaPoWriMo: Waiting for…

Izy’s here to kick off week two. She says that although her prompt, at face value, may seem simple, it will bring us a little out of the standard. She asks us to write a poem about waiting, but not to tell her what we’re waiting for in the poem.

      1. Yay! I knew it was the waves, the tide, but you’ve cleverly, poetically hidden it in plain view. Hope you were rewarded for your patience 🙂

    1. I miss living right next to the sea. From where we live now, it’s a 15 minutes drive. But we do have the Norfolk Broads on our doorstep and boats at the end of the garden, so I can’t grumble. 🙂
