Revival

Freedom of Expression, Poetry

#freedomofexpression #revival

Returning for three nights…to the place of their youth

Excited parents gather round to enjoy a performance

Vitalised for a new audience

If you looked at the script…it hasn’t changed much

Versatile young things star with masters of their craft

As seasoned fans of the drama sit with brand new groupies

Like it or loathe it….you’ll go just to see if it was good as the last time

Retro

Poetry

In response to Fandango’s One word Challenge

They say if you can remember the sixties – you weren’t there

but fashion’s a fickle thing

Millennials walking down to the disco

in an homage to their Mums and dads

with some wide flares and knee high boots

listening and dancing to tunes on played on vinyl

that mum danced with dad when they were young

there’s something missing with that digital stuff

no feel, snap , crackle or pop

hearing the groove from the record player – its top!

Fireworks on the dance floor

Poetry, Romance, Romantic

I

I wanna be that fellow

That dances with the redhead

In a Viennese waltz

At the end of the night

Ii

I want to guide her

Around the floor

Her dainty feet skipping

Off the glitter ball lights

Iii

Eyes on the prize

As lights skip on the floor

And Rose Red dances delightfully

With her Prince Charming

Iv

Captivated by her delicate poise

Our movement just floating … hardly a noise

And watching us both….a bit of a crowd

Though it’s only the music that seems a bit loud

V

Fireworks ? Magic as we travel around floor

The crowd they applaud and yell out for more

But as spotlight leaves us, something they’ll miss

In the dark of a second, a surreptitious kiss

Old Friends

Poetry, Schooldays

Note from Inky:

Cheers to

https://serafinajayne.wordpress.com/2017/02/09/friendship/

for the prompt

 

You’ve been around for a bit

going round in the same circles

but passing each other without noticing

 

You shared everything

from gobstoppers to pencil cases

and spots on the high school bus

 

Your paths met

a lifetime fork in the road

as you went one way, and they went another

 

You wandered where they ended up

No phone calls letters or e-mails

Till one day – a message – “You’ve got mail”

 

Arrangements made

and best suit pressed

for a meet of the whole year – most impressed

 

And as you reach, the dance hall door

your old friends sat waiting – like you knew them before

as you head out to venture the dance hall floor

Fuschia

For some, they are seen floating in mid air

undercurrents of air gently lifting them up and down

seen amongst the green – they are the ballerinas of the garden

captivating the eye of the gardener and the

heart of the passer by as they perform their routine

it’s a wonder to see in the light of the morning sun

as a host of flowery dances take place – attracting the fauna.
