"Hand me the #scull, Haskins."
"We haven't even found a body yet, sir."
"Not skull, scull...oar."
"The thing you row with."
"My temper's not that bad, sir."
"Not row... row."
"But you said row."
"Did I? I meant row, not row."
"Why didn't you say row?"
#Scull in solitude
Legs move back
In time with the rhythm
Of the oars
No need to force
Gliding, floating, drifting forward
At one with the universe
Thoughts and stresses
Watching the sunset
On this beautiful day

They wave and seize the oars. My heart flexes painfully as I watch them #scull away, boat cutting a groove through brackish water. I worry, but I trust them of course. They're both very mature for five. That's border collies for you. #vss365
These hands of mine
who make me #scull hard
through veins of the crowd
yearn to write a poem
about rowing in pair
with you knowing
the North Star&
and me smelling
the Rose of Winds
reaching the shore
before the World
turns upside down.
Let me be the #scull
the oar that makes
I'll take us thwart
the rolling waves
our motive force
that is transcendent
a storm tossed sea
Fated to be free
#vss365 #scull https://t.co/E0sBBjT7ua
I drift away
On a raft
Come and #scull me away
All the way to an intergalactic
In the big obsidian sparkling sea sky
Irish Gran and Grandpa loved their day out at the Annual Boat Race on the Thames.
After watching each 8 #scull boat whizz past at an incredible speed, they spent a lazy afternoon on the riverbank.
Gran loved the atmosphere, Grandpa loved the sausage sandwiches. #vss365 https://t.co/FDImT7vvxO
At night, the moon is a little boat, said the samurai knight. We could scull across the sky with spoons.
There are fish in the river of sky, the bobcat said. The stones are slippery, here---
A splash! And more splashes as the turtles scattered.
I am lost
Can not #scull
These waters of
A pirate’s life’s full of unknowns:
Hidden stones, boats with groans, Davy Jones.
And when the wind, she won’t flow
The crew has to row,
Which is why they fly the #scull and bones.
"Bren, y we watchin a smeggin boat race?" Riz moaned from my pocket.
"Because there's nothing else to do." I sighed.
"Yer sure bout dat? Dere's Gobs ovar dere wit one of der boats."
"What do they think they're doing!"
"learnin ta #scull I think" Riz retorted.
I twirled the #scull, trying to find the balance point. It was heavier than a staff but good enough. If I kept it moving, it would work. When it cracked the first goon's skull like a melon, I decided I'd found a new friend. Now for the other three thugs.
She had seen many couples floundering around her
Where each were a blinkered #scull paddling furiously in different directions
Sadly without any real hope of aligning
Their boats were doomed & never to enjoy any headway upon untroubled, let alone upon troubled waters
Using long thin arms
The boys #scull the blue island ocean on their backs
Before their daily dive for lobsters w/o oxygen tanks
To sell for pennies to restaurants
Where tourists flock for the fresh treat
The boys are invisible
Today one stays below
No one notices #vss365
A simple #scull adrift
Left to the whims of unseen currents
What fate awaits it?
Broken and splintered by rough waters?
Or recovered by loving hands
To ride the tides once more
Half the day, Agnes kept mooning.
"See that rower?" Brian pointed to the lake, "using a #scull is okay but a pair is the best."
"To move forward - nation building - the gov't & rebel groups should row in unison, together."

He bit down on his lip until he tasted blood.
If only he hadn’t said those unfortunate words to the captain.
Now he was left with a lifepod, a single #scull, and a future more uncertain than the intentions of a hive mind AI. It was going to be a long trip back to Mars.
"cause of death according to postmortem report is a blunt force trauma to skull"
"why would anyone use a #scull to crush a skull teddy?"
"who says it was scull maggie"
"crushing skull with scull rhymes well mate"
Sculling herself to sobriety, burdens trickled down her shoulders, and sculpted a life long ago imagined.
Scull scull #scull the boat
Awkwardly out to sea
Circling dizzying not propellying
Confused as where I be
As she launched
Into the deep sea
Regret and sorrow
Feelings like these
All her liberty
As soon as she began
To breathe and #scull
I saw Mendel snap a #scull over his knee. He used one end to fend off a ghoul and the other to impale the late Nathan D.
Let it never be said that a #vampire is not resourceful.
Joseph Tobias Mendel will undoubtably survive the overpopulation purge.
#Scull chords brush
Daffodil rays & summer stars
Sing to me..
I ruffle my hand
On the oceans waves..
Falls soft on me..
I wilt vine
The quills of the dying storm
Blossom the night to flower
The soul of me a moonstone
I scull in your mind
loving get sculled
you'll invite me
sprightly are sculling me
hold on, I'm coming

José was a marvel in water. He could #scull so fast the water in his wake literally boiled. On one mission he boiled alive our pursuers, saving us from exposure and capture. His call sign was Barracuda. How apt! Stranger still is that he could not walk or stand unaided.
I shall #scull my way
to that island
see the one there
with salt white sands
n lazy lapping shores
I shall make myself
of verdant leaf n vine
n bat away the hours
in a floss of
sweetest dreams https://t.co/iAHYVMqqv1
Lost #scull overboard
Fear like bugs #crawl over me
How do I get home?
#vss365 #haikuchallenge #haiku
I can't #scull the ocean just to get to the other side. It's not the same thing as why did the chicken crossed the road. It's the impossibility of such action and often my actions don't speak louder than my words.
a skull in a scull
we crawl across the water
rowing to dream home
