Fay Slimm

Rookie - 12 Points (Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A Clear Recall.


Recalling past events we often find as
Time rolls on, splint'ring golden memories
Into fragments, we need a resolutely
Patient mind, to pick thru' pieces left behind.
Then oozing love between each broken dream
We can scheme to stick the jigsaw shapes until
Quite whole and clear, we see then brilliantly,
Another stored and well-loved memory.
Contentedly, we then can live in days when
Our young love was strong, as it used to be.

    Fay, I really must say that your poetry is marvellous. Like a good wine, to be savoured and in no way hurried.

    I think as we get older we develop selective memory, glossing over the bad bits sometimes, a very good write as always Fay,
