the 12 given words:
swagger bikini orange Hawaii waves 
nene (a gray-brown wild goose, state bird of Hawaii)
surfin' escalate 
propinquity (n)) nearness in place; proximity relation; kinship,time etc)
sempiternal (everlasting, eternal)
clutch driftwood  

to swagger bikini clad  in bright 
orange then to swim in the Hawaiian 
waves was akin to a nene in the water
which could command lots of attention

surfin' within the proximity of shore
ensured visual prominence 
which invariably could escalate
into a propinquity of relationships
with the array of beach-boys
a kinship often sempiternal in nature

this had been the experience 
of a sprinkling of socialites 
and successful urban ladies 
caught in the clutches of good 
times who desired and longed 
for a diversion

it was not driftwood either
but a catch of a lifetime for some 
wayward but good-looking hunks

    Hope you are having an enjoyable spring. Ours was very sporadic, but I think we are safe from any more snow fall. Cheers - Jules
