See Saw Jig Saw Words

Found this poem on my computer. Wrote it a few years ago.

In fever
I’ve been
a machine
all night

See saw
jig saw words
tumble
& fall
to make an image
as they land
on sand

Truth is that
beauty
never sleeps
alone

Beauty lies
under a cloud
in darkness
rarely seen

Truth and love
live
side by side
with romance
out of sight

While you’re
asleep
we’re awake
& see the dream’s
a joke

We left the
car & caravan
in the
flooding stream

Retuned to
find a
baby on a horse

She looked
at us with
knowing
eyes

we played
our games
online
so lost
we could not find
the tokens
for the
times

  1. Mooi, Walter. Ik hou van poëzie en heb menig gedicht geschreven dus vind het ook verrassend en leuk iets van jou te lezen.
    So this is an older poem I understand. I’m always curious how people relate to work they wrote years ago, is it still relevant?
    For me some poems are and contain an element of universal timelessness and some are not, but they serve as a beacon of time and memories 🙂

    Je nicht,
    Lucienne
