U -s for

Urban spawn

With flick of foot
and subtle shift of weight
skatboarders glide across
sidewalks, sliding from shadow to
light, dark and dappled, darting
through the flow of trafficc
with flashing leaps,
graceful, quick as trout.

  1. I like the analogy. You make this often dangerous activity sound beautiful. Our neighborhood association banned skateboarding because it became a nuisance. You have looked at it from another point of view.

    Tossing It Out

  2. Flashing leaps, quick as trout - great comparison. Urban spawn indeed!
