/*23 Breaths: The devil winds*/

The devil winds

You know how it goes

You consult the charts

You make the call

You send the texts

then you go to bed

and pray for surf.




This particular Sunday

devil winds

had blown half the night

I knew that fortune was smiling

when the planets aligned

and my 20 minute trip to the beach

was reduced to 10 minutes

because I didn't stop at

a traffic light

the whole way.


The swell

a decent

3-4 feet

came in hot and at an angle

and did battle

with the morning

high tide.

Yes there were some screamers.

The locals

The big brown

pelicans

preferred the rights

using the offshore winds

to suspend themselves

just inches above

the water.

But now

that it is

all said

and done.

There were no pictures

so it never really happened...
