Poem of the Day: "barnacles" by Lauren McBride, Frequent Contributor


barnacles
solidly cemented
against changing tides

--Lauren McBride



Poet's Notes: I enjoy minimalist poetry, and in particular the hay(na)ku where a thought is expressed in only six words. Many of my poems are inspired by nature's beauty and especially the ocean.  Anyone who has ever scraped bare skin across a barnacle-encrusted rock knows that barnacles are "solidly cemented" and the skin will suffer.
