EDC Writing – Imagined Real

Beaconsfield to Marylebone

Maidenhead to Paddington

Windsor to Waterloo

lines in, and out again

Exeter from all begun

Devon left, half century on

 

River Thames meandering

fields beside, counties bridged

Buckinghamshire, Berkshire views

English ways, getting there

London, underground, overground

buses, walking, taxi hailed

 

Platformed faces, street eyes, busy

the suit, the dress, jeans, short skirts

all shapes, legs that go on, and on

smiles, few since the Olympics, wrong

seats offered, asked if okay, hand held

strangers, friends, would be lovers, strays

 

Wake, early morning, kettle on, need tea

still dark, recalled, sub-conscious scenes

write, behind the eyes to laptop screen

edit, rarely, as is, simple, concise, rhythmic

interpretation, your mind, what you see

life, relationships, imagined, real

Call for submissions: update

Still time to submit your writing to Free Verse Revolution for the January theme -‘Earth’

FREE VERSE REVOLUTION

Dear readers & contributors,

January is proving to be a long month on FVR and so submissions have slowed down.

I still have 6 spaces left for contributing writers and I would love to fill them with your work!

If you are interested please see the guidelines on our submissions page.

The theme is Earth but your poem or prose can be loosely linked, the theme is just a starting point. I accept previously published pieces too!

In the event you have already contributed this month, I would appreciate it if you could share this post. Thank you!

Happy writing!

Kristiana
