Barnacle Bound

Barnacle Bound

A Poem by barleygirl
"

for whatever its worth . . .

"

Time travelling lately within my kindle
overloaded by all the non-stop swindle
embarking my lively humpback whale
barnacle bound on a long-winded sail
wafting tickles on a gossamer breeze
a swish of swanky to frankly appease
read kelp leaves to where we’re bound
dropping anchor let dead weight drown
enchanted wand mends over-pollution
swish sage smudge for ozone dilution
my random tinkering may appear fake
wayward stray to avert my heartbreak.

I’m an old barnacle long since thrashed
pummeling tides and treks unlashed
ravished by roiling rivers and years
tossed my pail no more gathering tears
the firehose of hate makes me morose
blatant squandering wardens are gross
seeing new vigor leap up and dance
helps me believe there’s still a chance
go ahead and scorn me as I go my way
I already earned each strand of gray
I’m late for a date with Mr. Humpback
to zoom far from this megalomaniac
grumpy old bowels need plenty of fiber
that’s why I’m not a hogwash subscriber
oops I think I hear notes so pastorale
you know this is where I go au naturale!

i love this Barley Girl!!! i enjoy the rise and fall of moods ..magical heal the earth ride on the whale ... reading kelp leaves for guidance ..you are the babe says i!
i see the scams and
hogwashers sure ..but
its nothing a little bare a*s
won't cure ;)
i just love you girl ...i know i told you but the wee early morning out with me puppies ..scenting the air...peering into pre-dawn forest .. intent on listening ... you share it with me my friend .. thanks :)

Very neat, Margie! I like the parallel of reading kelp leaves (though I don’t myself read my tea, but drink it).

I think we are needing to form a self support group for compulsive rhymers Margie. When I get started its hard to stop. On the positive side you are giving out a lot of pleasure so keep right on! I guess that I'm like many who wonder where they all come from. This poem is great fun and you manage to cover plenty of ground - well water. It's a while since I've seen a line about a humpbacks bowels!
Cheers,
Alan

AS great as technology is... the key to staying happy and sane lies within nature. Getting back to nature is getting back to our roots. Hope all is going well.

Hope things are going well, Margie.
Was going to play with words.
But maybe not the time for that.
I'll wait till you're back online and rocking.

Barley Girl -I envy your ability to have so much fun with serious stuff. That isn't taking into account your marvelous talent in getting everything to rhyme. What also gets me is the fact that I have the impression that you live in a mountainous area and yet you have this easy way of stripping off your clothes and going naked into your world. I'm sure it must be your inner warmth and glow that protects you from the cold.

Thanks for the romp! - Dave

Yet another tale of rampant nudity...are you a nudist now, then? Twirling naked around the kitchen, riding a whale bareback--bare-- what is next, that's what I want to know! Riding nude with Santa in his sleigh? Naked skiing in Colorado? One can but surmise...
A lovely ramble; wish I could go along!
