I wrote this piece on holiday, during a time of un-interrupted silliness.

MISTS AND MASTS

I miss the mystery of the sea

Its mystic mist I miss the most

Amidst a mass of masts amassed

A host of coastal boats afloat

Happy trails,

Hi Theresa. It was very satisfying to get the last line finished to make this tongue twister. Would be fun to read out drunk maybe, though I don't think I could even read it sober! Bye for now.

This is the second best piece of writing ever created. The first of course being "She sells sea shells down by the sea shore".

Exellent Word Play
