Rookie - 519 Points (JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

Ocean Glass


Don't turn around
look back,

echoes - never stop!

but you do,

every second splits,

hurdles over you,

dump the past,

ahead of time,

try digesting
everything you
did or didn't do,

doesn't get you
through,

a window
of situations...


II


Bricks & bars,
gaoler of hearts,

are 'words' the sentence?

so many for an idiot,

but when your in love
with what you haven't
got - it feels better...

oh! rustic whims,
you know when I get out,

I'm gone! !

rocky caverns, puddles
asleep in the night,
deserted beaches,

or whenever some amazing
coloured sky manoeuvres in,
momentarily the simple
things amount to so much
inner treasure,

items sucked out of proportion
strewn along wispy sands,

the shape of a former soul!
who stood where, I don't know,
along some distant shore...

and here I am, my own message,
bobbing up and down in
the world day,

what's to say...the message...

I lost my point, long ago,
on old paper,
from digging in too hard,

veritable hearts get scratched...

Amongst the flowers I
