Fay Slimm

(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.

    A beautifully crafted account of how loving memories are, in no small part, a product of our creativity. (Report) Reply

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

    Dreaming of the past is great if you can leave out the bad bits.10 from Tom (Report) Reply

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

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
