My Uncle’s
old blue van

gone to seed now

growing like
some strange mechanical
vegetable

beside the chicken shed.

This...is such a lovely poem. I was utterly charmed and delighted in how the real and imaginary world intercut each other or blended together. The story of it is wonderfull and really evokes the child playing and inhabiting both times. The double take of times and the wonderful imagery is just astounding. I laugh out loud when the dog checks his rear and his rear view mirror...the two images living together and when you got out to check the engine and it was just as you though...no engine. And the way nature entwined around the old blue van and took it over and (see there is so many ands!) the notion of those snails going nowhere fast barely able to hold on in the imaginary slipstream! Ha...they were great. And when the imaginary car meets the real horse. I whinned with laughter. Just such great stuff. Can't do any more ands as that will just reproduce the entire poem here! Wonderful wonderful poem. Watch my lips... dee-light-full! love Dee Lightful!

OOOOOOHHHHH, what a lovely ride! The road that takes you anywhere, any time, everywhere, over hill, down dale, through the woods to wonderland....the wonderland of childhood, where anything is possible. How beautifully crafted this poem is, and with what power you recall the child within yourself. Thank you, Donall Donall for this wonderful trip....down the Imaginary Road.
