Nostalgia – Remembering

by Miriam Hurdle


Once in awhile, I have an urge of

Going home to see my parents.

I shook my head hard for a few seconds,

Remembering that they were gone to heaven.

by Jem Croucher


Caught the train as usual
but travelled back in time
The years slipped by like miles

Frantically leathery slippery
Like all dashing hopes ..

And the diminutively bottled
fragrant shampoos, creams, gels …
Blah.. blah.. blah…..
With the narrow necks..
