By Ken Allan Dronsfield


I saw objects of my generation destroyed,

How I mourned the loss of belief and faith.

I cannot help but stop and look at the cunning locale.

Down, down, down into the darkness of an abyss,

whilst watching from afar within a budding crocus.

The lifeline, structured, above all others is the part.

I look at diverse venues. All appear to be different.

venues are drivers, venues are questing, however;

where are they – the thick, the fruitful, the thin.

How happy is the context of theatrical echoes.

A forest portal, guiding me through from here to there,

lights shining, sounds and images during dreams alike.

We descended here as stars; awash with pixie dust tails;

comet trails of crimson sprinkles with diamond wings.

Riding the back of a pink striped raven in spring skies.
