Trev hits Texas again, his 2013 tour. (Homeward bound)

Image: Austin airport on the way home

 

30.04.13: 150) The day’s dawning,

Misty an’ cool like an English morning

Finished packin’ up,

Now away before the traffic starts backin’ up

Though it ain’t that far, breakfast then drop off my car

Through customs then wait, at the departure gate

For the plane to come in an’ let my journey home begin

 

151) Check in ...

143) This morning taking stock then suddenly a shock

My poems I couldn’t find, panic on my mind

Feelin’ like a jerk losin’ 17 days work

What I’d seen, where I’d been

People I’d met day and night, inspired me to write

A  poetry score an’ then write more

Now amid the clutter I’m heard to mutter

“What’s g...

28.04.13: 136) They thought it was awesome,

Almost moresome

What did I do to give such delight?

I shared my malt vinegar

At the Pachanga dinner last night

 

137) I couldn’t dwell, time to bid farewell

No goodbye tear but “see you next year”.

It was dark but warm like the calm before the storm

Engine f...

25.04.13: 107) Sky's grey same as yesterday

Bird's singin' crossing bells ringin'

Train's comin, progress makin' whole house shakin'

An' I'm usin' the time to capture it in rhyme.

 

108) At Alan's I'm stayin' baroque music playin'

Music so mellow, on flute, harpsichord or cello

As you may be supposin, I'm sat composin'

Hopin...

24.04.13: 104) Cold wind blowin' down the road I'm goin''

Still dark, I'm leavin' the motel car park

Long way to travel, let my journey unravel

Sky showin grey, now it's break of day

Stop at Choke Canyon Hill

Gap in my stomach to fill

Spittin with rain I'm movin again

Cloudy day I'm on my way

98) Breakfast done, from Austin I'm gone,

Interstate 35 I'm on

Makin' my way neath clouds of grey

To San Antonio just over an hour away

Drivin' along listenin' to a country song

22.04.13: 85) For breakfast at a local Taco bar

Near the motel it ain't that far

A Guy asked "Do you want a woman for the time of your life?"

I said "No thanks at home I got a wife".

He shook my hand sayin' "from a married man that's what I'd expect

man you just ...

75) We sang we spoke we played, last night new friendships were made

Lyric verse an' rhyme some of us meetin' for the first time

Shake hands, smile an' hug bitten by the friendship bug

Get down have a blast new friendships sure to last

Event sure ain't been in vain we're all wantin' to come back again

34) Grackle cacophony in the tree above

Accompanied by gentle cooing of the dove

Heralds the morning says farewell to night

Pretty soon they'll all take flight

Soaring up and away, at the start of a new Lamesa day

 

35) 9:15 and off we go, our first morning radio show

By 9:30 we had to be, at Radio KPET

30) This morning I went for breakfast but,

I found the Taco Bar was shut

Still no dismay, I’d get something on the way

To Lamesa to give my best,

Helping promote the Forrest Fest

Get the event alive for when the other guests arrive

Connie had said “drive careful comin’ here

15) I arrived last night, my final flight

Called at the care hire place, then to collect my case

Good time management was my intent.

It worked, cos' I hadn't  lurked

All went right, I drove to my hotel for the night

Didn't unpack cos' it was my intent to take in my first poetry event

Wife and daughter upstairs asleep,

Strange how time now seems to creep

Trev hits Texas again his 2013 tour. Pre Departure Days

Yes once again it's across the pond to America another poetry tour, again solely in Texas, this time only 19 days. Once again I hope to record it in rhyme. I fly out on April 12, again I am writing as the inspiration takes me, hence the title. The poems may or may not be titled but all will have the date they were written and comments in (italics and brackets).

I wrote the following during ...
