Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem has a surfing focus, which is quite topical … but mostly for people living in the southern hemisphere, which is on the other side of the world to Marc! But this is the home of Folding Mirror poetry, which thrives on turning things upside down!!
Marc has only surfed for a few hours, so this poem is mostly based on watching surfing documentaries and imagination. Surfing terms, including green room being inside a hollow wave, were researched on the wiktionary surfing terms glossary. Here’s the poem:
Surfing Sea Psyche
crest of wave
for perfect swell
ride blue surf down
tubing a hollow, conversing with nature
inside the green room
worries wiped out
of daily clutter
