My Surf Dreaming


I wrote this poem on the beach in Lacanau Océan, on an exceptionnally sunny day, on Sunday February 6, 2011.
On the occasion of my 18 year old daughter’s birthday, I had a sudden inspiration to create this poem, based on Rudyard Kipling’s “If”.
I grew up with this poem… in eye sight every day : “you’ll be a man, my son”.
I knew it by heart, I knew its “music”, which certainly explains the speed at which I created it, two hours…
At first I was just out for some fun, but then I got all caught up in it…
