June 2019 Collage Poem: Going Back in Time

entry picture


Overhanging your tiredness

Coming home


Ah 60’s! Too young, let’s do it again.

60’s women, short skirts, knickers


Don’t look now in Blackpool

The man selling sand is here again


What comes before?

Silent silver surfing by the sea


Falling into the past

Looking back, we see clearly.


Footprints in the sand of disbelief

Nowhere to fly across the skyline


Discarded memories rearranged to

Tell another story going back


Walking in the footsteps of another time,

60’s music playing, freedom dancing, and intoxicated mind.


Bending down pink mini

Showing my bum… never!

Never in a month of Sundays!


Waving to myself

It’s all Greek to me


In Lindisfarne the sky is darkening

We will cross the causeway one more time


Bold, black ink

Still waiting to know the future.

Early Starter v Seconds Out

Early starter
collage note
sets off

Seconds out
being written
Last line

Folded over
knockout finish
then overlaped

By none
other than
early starter!

It is an incredible piece that really does seem to walk us back through time to sunny 60s beaches and mini skirts, perhaps hinting at a lost or secret history in the process.

I am impressed that you posted it so quickly John. I think this is possibly one of our most interesting yet.
