Connoisseurs And Counterfeits - Poem by Tony Jolley

Branksome Beach had a ‘feeling’ about it this morning,
(Less of a one this afternoon)
Only it was playing its cards too close to its chest for me to call.

    Tony,

    So it was you that caught a glimpsing from the corner of your eye. Did you catch an inkling? What wonders did you spy?

    Kind of spooky in a dreamy aboriginal way; how the natural landscape configures (or should that be prefigures) our gut perception of authenticity amidst a plethora of fleeting realities.

    I like this.
