Tossed to Hazards I

 

Bifocal Univision's Monday Photo Prompt - Hines Drive

 

Tossed to Hazards I

Smoothly avoiding hazards
but riding through teeth,
being chewed by metals
and convoluted by pliers.

Old, but not as wise,
nor deft, nor masterful as I wish.
Nor as skillful, nor as talented,
nor as well-drilled as you would like.

The hazards make me frail,
make par a separate universe.
Every day brings new ones,
viruses spreading visually
from bedlam in New York.

Humans, centered on commerce,
like bees stinging my eyelids,
humming, trampling like bulls,
and I, trapped, as in sand
or drowning in floods,
and none can ride safely with me
under gleaming surfaces of waters
with nothing but poles and chains
marking my likely penalties.

    That’s one big-ass water hazard! I’m never golfing here again! LOL!

    Nice take on my Monday Photo Prompt, Carl! I’m always intrigues where my pics take people’s minds.

      LOL! It does not matter how small they are, I find them. At least with the big ones, I have my excuses.

      Thank you for the wonderful picture. It was a fun prompt.

      Well, my eyes aren’t good and I wasn’t a history major. It was a wonderful time. I let loose.
