February 2012 Stockport WoL Collage Poem

entry picture


Strong families keep the memory of the nest alive

Music and life lasts a lifetime,

And each cloud holds a smile


I’m cold and thinking about John Denver for a while

Listening to the tumbling words that spin

I’m on the asparagus spectrum


And what with where-withal and where-without we face

And poets, when called to hate,

Are drawn to hope and love and fate



I would really like to walk across fields

Like in forgotten love in the pouring rain


Spiders lurk in passion, ages old;

Out of the darkness, a fire burns

I would really

Like to know

How each line

From different thoughts

Tumbling to spin

Then when read

Just join together.

Yep - it's not a lot different to the way some poems on here read anyway :)

I liked the asparagus line - I can see there was a joker in the pack.

Hah! Hard to believe this was written as a group collage poem at last night's Stockport Write Out Loud night. It reads well (I think).
It's done by each writing a line without seeing the previous one, folding the paper over, the opened out to reveal - this.
Well done everyone.
