Throwback Friday – ‘Greenland’ – Eric (EDC Writing)

‘Sam & Erin’s Story’ has been on hold a while as I completed ‘Shorts – a take on poetry’ – their story first saw the light of day as a mix of narrative scenes and messages – then became all messages – on re-reading I think I might change my mind again and add narrative text like this back in – your thoughts as ever welcome please…

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

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
