Treasure Hunter

by on July 31, 2022 :: 0 comments

I wake each morning
just after sunrise
sweeping my metal detector
back and forth,
hand shovel, swag net,
always ready
for the big find
that’s never there.
The punk kid
goes out on his surfboard
every morning and insults me:
“Hey Pop. Find any treasure?
Ha, ha.”
One day
I’ll find something great,
maybe a rolex watch
and show him.

editors note:

One waits to find treasure while the other waits to find a wave. Ha, ha! – mh clay
