D is for Double Trouble

Each day in April, except for Sundays, we are challenged to write on a topic that begins with the letter of the day.  Because it is also Poetry Month, I have chosen, for the second year in a row, to write a poem a day.  Sunday will have a poem related to the topic, but not assigned a letter.  Click on the AtoZ Challenge tab above and visit more bloggers participating in this alphabetically challenging month!

My topic is Maine Lobster Boat Names...with a Trawler or two thrown in for missing letters.  Photos are all taken by me, of boats on the coast here in Maine.  They are mostly on land, as this is where they are parked for the winter awaiting warmer days and lobsters to return from deeper waters.  So enjoy!  Here's D for Double Trouble =

"Double Trouble"
 I may double your trouble
But I'll double the fun

Salting your mornings
Flavoring your days
Spicing up summers
With ocean sprays

Working from morning
Til eve's setting sun.


Educational Diversion:
double - Two traps on a single buoy.
Watch as the lobster boat the Dominator is launched in Portland, Maine. I did not take this footage; it is available on YouTube.

  1. Hi, Donna. I've come over to your side of the continent. Boats and ships are a foreign culture to me. I find them a treat, riding as well as viewing them. Thanks for the treat. :-)
