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

  1. Ha, beach boys and bikinis.........and many stories can be spun from that combination. Good one, Hank.

  2. What a tease you are; you didn't mention the name of the beach!

  3. "it was not driftwood either
    but a catch of a lifetime"!
    How good you are with words and hints and glimpses, Hank.

  4. See plenty of those on my beach Hank. Great poem.

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