Watch & Listen: Laura Enever’s Surfing Poem
“Swim freely, Live authentically, My sweet escape, And still I feel right at home, I think its love”
Laura Enever’s surfing is stunning. The 26 year old Billabong rider slides effortlessly on everything from a twin in the dreamy tropics to fearlessly taking on Shipstern Bluff a just over a month ago.
Now, Laura has tried her hand at penning a little poetry. It might not be to the standard of Edgar Allan Poe or perhaps the surprisingly popular, Rupi Kaur, but it’s an inspiring attempt at romanticising the surf-experience nonetheless.
Here’s the poem in full, unadorned, or if you’re willing to immerse yourself to the spoken version you can watch and listen above:
You taught me to feel
Feel excitement and fear
Joy Feel time stop
You’ve shown me beauty
Beauty in challenge
In the world Beauty in the unknown
You gave me strength
Strength to fly
And to get back up
To let go
That’s the sweet sound of intuition
A Magnetic pull
Where time goes slowly
You float weightlessly
My sweet escape
And still I feel right at home I think its love
