Festival Fun

Spell-binding hammer-pounded sunlight retina-

flinches squint-eyed revel-faces.  Crowd folk lost in

head clouds slow-revolve whilst time is on leave, passing

without fail – stopping to tell me not to hurry,

moving on unnoticed, startling late-crowds with

midnights and an early, well spent sun rise.  Band-lulled

we join a synchronised gyro-walk, pacing the

flow-gyratory past food stalls and vaulted halls

of rare imagination, far out folk fusion-

milling in music-union ‘til here, we see

our sun’s last Western pass and in that sunlight, love

bursts the dams and we swear, next year, we’ll come once more.

Hi Douglas, thanks for your comments. Chaos often reigns! All part of the fun, I guess - it's a different world.

These kinds of festivals tend to be pretty chaotic, and you have captured that feeling really well in this poem.
