Surfing poem about the magic of duckdiving.

Ode to the Duckdive
 


 

Throwing gravity aside
 

this is the magical enchantment
 

of the duck dive
 

Surfer God
 

Changing atmospheres
 

From liquid to gas
 

Body reborn
 

euphoric in the presence of eminent danger
 

Some how defying nature’s authority
 

Against gravitational forces
 

Pulling
 

Ripping
 

Collapsing
 

Calling me
 

to that bone yard reef
 

That graveyard of epoxy and resin
 

Where the tombstones are surfboards broken in half
 

I become death’s passenger
 

Floating towards the light
 

Rays of angels surround me
 

as this miraculous extension of me
 

This powerful staff
 

propels me through Hades
 

The underworld holds me back
 

The water demons grab hold of my legs
 

while my surfboard carries me
 

into the sunlight
 

I have survived
 

For the time being
 

Now paddle like mad
 

Cause here comes the sets!!!
